The Royal Society of Chemistry hosts the National Chemical Database Service for the UK academic community. It brings together tools and resources for UK researchers in chemistry and related fields. This is an EPSRC-funded facility which allows free access to a suite of commercial databases for UK university staff and students.
Provides access to over 350 full-text SPIE eBooks from SPIE Press, the largest independent publisher of optics and photonics books. The collection includes monographs, reference works, field guides, tutorial texts, and Spotlight eBooks to keep researchers current on the latest science and technology and advancing their own work. Please note: there is no access to technical papers from SPIE Journals or to Conference Proceedings as we do not subscribe to those items - if you require a journal article or a conference paper you may apply for a digital reading or request the whole volume from our Interlibrary loans service (a charge may apply).
