Understanding and using the Scientific Literature is a learning process that starts from the first day of your studies, and continues throughout your career. Having these skills is an essential part of being an effective, responsible scientist. Yet your coursework may not include much if any instruction about scientific information, and your professors may just assume you already know all about it. Here's where we can help.
This tutorial is written for students in CH 456 (Analytical Chemistry for majors) and CH 376K (Advanced Analytical Chemistry) laboratories, but it's also useful to everyone who wants an overview of how to find and use chemical literature.
