As part of the University-wide initiative to move to a new website system, the IUP Libraries have migrated a portion of their web content to the new Content Management System. To access the library website using the new system, go to http://www.iup.edu/library.
The web migration is still ongoing, so if you need to find information that has not been moved at this time, please visit our old web page at www.lib.iup.edu.
We have recently added Highwire Press, a collection of full-text journals in science and technology, to our list of available databases. Highwire Press includes full-text articles in biology, medicine, nursing, plant science, psychology, toxicology, and many other scientific areas.
The IUP Libraries have recently acquired online access to the New England Journal of Medicine, considered one of the most influential medical journals in the world. This database contains indexing and abstracting for the NEJM from 1975-1992, and full-text of the journal from 1993 to the present.
You can access the online subscription to the NEJM here.
The IUP Libraries now offers the ability to search through multiple databases offered by CAS (Chemical Abstracts Services), including Chemical Abstracts, using the SciFinder Scholar (SFS) software. Here’s a sample of what’s available via SFS:
- More than 13 million single- and multi-step reactions
- More than 1 billion predicted and experimental properties
- The CAS REGISTRYSM database – the original source and final authority for CAS Registry Numbers – updated daily
- All patent records, meeting CAS selection criteria, from 9 of the major patent offices are available online within 2 days of the patents’ issuance
- Sequences combined from CAS and GenBank databases, which are indexed and linked to scientific journal and patent literature
- Direct linking from SciFinder Scholar to IUP’s e-journal collection
