Key Chemistry E-Book Collections at UCSD
Key UCSD ebook collections with chemistry and biochemistry titles. You can search for titles in Roger or search title/full-text at the publisher websites.
- If you search at the publisher websites, expect large sets of search results, due to the full-text book searching (and journals if applicable). Searches have to be more specific.
