The Leatherby Libraries is pleased to offer access to several new STEM resources that will benefit students, faculty, and staff.

Embase, Health Library Physical Therapy ebooks, and
new Royal Society of Chemistry journals

  • Embase is a new biomedical literature database from Elsevier recommended for systematic reviews and meta-analyses due to its coverage of over 8,100 journals and 3.6 million conference abstracts. Our subscription offers coverage of biomedical literature from 1947 to the present.
  • The Library added a collection of Physical Therapy ebooks to our existing Health Library subscription from Lippincott, Williams, and Wilkins. There are nearly 40 titles in exercise physiology, geriatrics, imaging, kinesiology and biomechanics, motor control, muscle structure, musculoskeletal disorders, pediatrics, therapeutic exercise, and more. The collection includes videos, cases, and the ability to perform self-assessments if users register for a personal account.
  • The Library added ten new additional titles to the Royal Society of Chemistry journal collection.
    All of these resources can be accessed through the Database A-Z link or by looking up individual titles in the Journal A-Z List. The new titles that supplement our existing subscription to the Core Chemistry Collection are listed below.

    • Analyst
    • Chemical Communications
    • Chemical Society Reviews
    • Food & Function (2010-present)
    • Green Chemistry
    • Nanoscale (2009-present)
    • Organic Chemistry Frontiers (2014-present)
    • Polymer Chemistry (2010-present)
    • RSC Advances (2013-2016)
    • Soft Matter

Currently the access to these journals is available from 2008 to the present unless noted otherwise.
