In addition to providing information on journal articles, Web of Knowledge now contains information on more than 10,000 books in the sciences. Web of Knowledge users can find journal article references cited within books as well as in other journal articles. References cited within books and book chapters constitute the full bibliographies from these books and chapters, and the platform enables linking to the full text of articles contained in the books’ bibliographies. The database also now provides “times cited” information for books and book chapters.
Search the Book Citation Index content from the familiar Web of Knowledge interface. You can limit your results to just books and book chapters by using the Refine Results feature located on the left side of the results screen. When you find a book or book chapter of interest, use the FindIt! button in the record to look for the book in the online catalog. Books included in Book Citation Index may be available as e-books. If the book is not owned by the University of Chicago, we can usually get a copy for your use via Interlibrary Loan or UBorrow. Individual book chapters for titles we own in print can also be delivered electronically to you using the new Scan and Deliver service.
We are pleased to announce that the Library has purchased the entire archive for Chemical & Engineering News for 1923-2010. The archive includes cover to cover digitized issues of all content from C&EN since 1941, as well as from the previous incarnations of magazine: Industrial and Engineering Chemistry, News Edition (1923–1939) and News Edition, American Chemical Society (1940–1941).
Over 500,000 pages of content is included and is a treasure trove for researching history of modern chemistry and chemical industry. Shown above is a portion of the article covering the dedication of the University of Chicago’s George Herbert Jones Laboratory in 1930 (Ind. Eng. Chem., News Ed., 1930, 8 (1), pp 3–4), just one of the many fascinating pieces of history covered in the C&EN Archive.
