SIAM Journals Online
Items published by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. Covers many areas of applied math.
Web of Science
Broad natural science database. Includes tools for ananlyzing sets of citation results. Great for tracing literature and for impact values.
Similar to Web of Science for citation searching. Find who cited who from 1996-present. Covers more publications than Web of Science.
Materials published by Elsevier, a particular prolific science publisher. Broad science and technical coverage.
Publications from Springer, a prolific science publisher.
Electronic pre-publication of papers primarily in physics, math, and computer science.
An archival database, which means nothing here is current. Still a good resource for some older math literature.
For UH dissertations/theses, use this search box. The thesis collection is located on the 3rd floor of the Gold Wing.
For non-UH dissertations/theses, try the following sources. Remember, you may have to use ILL to request the thesis you want from another library.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to request articles, books, and more that the UH Libraries do not have access to. Faculty may also use ILL to request items the Libraries do own in order to receive them via email.
