Key E-Book Collections for Chemistry

Some ebook collections that might be particularly helpful. But when searching the publisher websites, consider making your search more narrow, rather than broadly like the library catalog. Since you're searching the full text of their books and articles, general searches will give you too many results. We also may not have every book listed on their website. Check Roger for a print copy, or consider requesting via interlibrary loan.
