This guide is designed to help you start your research in Materials Science.  Use the tabs to navigate this guide, and be sure to scroll down to see the content on each page. There are also guides for Chemistry and the other engineering disciplines (Nanotechnology, Chemical Engineering, Bioengineering, MAE, ECE, and Structural Engineering) as well as a separate guide for SciFinder. Please email me if you have additional research questions, would like to set up an appointment, or have other sources to include in the guide.
