Consult the Subject Guides "Finding Articles/Using Databases" tab for a list of annotated databases that index and provide links to fulltext content. Remember topics are very interdisciplinary and span all science, technology, business and related fields.
Increasingly many of our licensed library resources are available via mobile devices - this link will tell you what is available and on what platform.
On December 31, 2022, the SciFinder “classic” interface will be retired for the University of California system. Going forward, we will only have access to SciFinder-n (or SciFindern, https://scifinder-n.cas.org).
CAS has created some good training videos on SciFinder-n (https://www.cas.org/support/training/scifinder-n). There are also some upcoming webinars, and I can offer training to classes, research groups, and individuals.

Materials Science at UCI focuses on the development of new materials and new applications for materials in engineering. Collections include coverage of nanomaterias, nanostructures, nanoelectronics, nanodevices, nanocharacterization, packaging materials, materials for advanced energy and fuel cells, biocompatible materials, soft and smart materials, electronic and photonic materials, hybrid materials and multifunctional materials. The materials may include polymers, ceramics, glass, metals, alloys, synthetics, concrete, etc. There is a wide range of information products to support the study of materials science and its many applications in product development and other defined areas. Significant growth in the collections for crystallography and crystal structures is most prominent.
When using Online or Internet Resources, consider Search Engines vs. metasites - evaluate resource - consider domain - .edu, .com, .gov, .org, etc.
