Contents of the SPIE Digital Library Proceedings of SPIE: Starting at Volume 1200 (1990)* Optical Engineering: Starting at Volume 29 (1990) Journal of Electronic Imaging: Starting at Volume 1 (1992) Journal of Biomedical Optics: Starting at Volume 1 (1996) Journal of Micro/Nanolithography, MEMS, and MOEMS: Starting at Volume 1 (2002) Journal of Applied Remote Sensing: Starting at Volume 1 (2007) Journal of Nanophotonics: Starting at Volume 1 (2007) Journal of Photonics for Energy: Starting at Volume 1 (2011) SPIE eBooks: A selection beginning 1989 * Some Proceedings volumes are not available in the SPIE Digital Library as SPIE does not have electronic rights to this material.
1917-present; access to the largest collection of peer-reviewed optics and photonics content via The Optical Society's (OSA) digital library. This repository includes all of OSA's content, and complements it with key co-publications. With papers from journals and conferences, the content covers a breadth of disciplines. Conference papers are included, but the earliest is 1985.
Current; four international laboratories for high energy physics - CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research center for accelerator research), DESY (Deutches Electronen-Synchroton - German laboratory), Fermilab (DOE national laboratory), and SLAC (National accelerator laboratory at Stanford University) - have built the next-generation High Energy Physics (HEP) information system, INSPIRE. This system replaces SPIRE. The database content, still curated by subject specialists at DESY, Fermilab, and SLAC, is combined with the Invenio digital library technology developed at CERN. Bibliographic data is updated daily. The collaboration works closely with HEP publishers including arXiv.org, NASA-ADS, PDG (Particle Data Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory). Full text access of indexed articles depends on Brown University Library's subscriptions. [This resource is publicly available.]
1975-present; from the Smithsonian and NASA, this database of abstracts contains data from several sources, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Physics, and arXiv e-prints. The main body of data in the ADS consists of bibliographic records, which are searchable through our Abstract Service query forms and full-text scans of much of the astronomical literature which can be browsed though our Browse interface. Integrated in its databases, the ADS provides access and pointers to a wealth of external resources, including electronic articles, data catalogs and archives. [This resource is publicly available]

1954-present; the ACM (Association of Computing Machinery) Digital Library is a collection of citations and full text from ACM journal and newsletter articles and conference proceedings. Access is also provided to the ACM guide, which is a collection of bibliographic citations and abstracts of works published by ACM and other publishers. Citations for all ACM published works are included in the guide.
1940-present; an index to the international research literature in mathematics, math-related research in computer science, statistics, econometrics, and other disciplines, produced by the American Mathematical Society. MathSciNet is also available via the EBSCOhost interface. For help using MathSciNet see Video Tutorials Menu.
1868-present; Zentralblatt Math covers the entire spectrum of mathematics including applications in computer science, mechanics, physics, etc. It contains references to the worldwide literature drawn from currently about 2,300 journals and serials, from conference proceedings, collections of papers and books.
1800's-present; PubMed is a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine that includes 26+ million citations from MEDLINE and other life science journals for biomedical articles. PubMed includes links to full text articles and other related resources. [This resource is publicly available.] The Library also has access to MEDLINE via Web of Science and via Ovid Medline.
1907-present; comprehensive database of chemical literature from databases produced by Chemical Abstracts Service and the National Library Of Medicine. It covers the full range of chemistry-related information, including chemical structures, properties, and reactions; biosequences; and life sciences. Each user must REGISTER. USERS MUST HAVE A Brown IP (Ethernet or VPN) AND SUBMIT A BROWN EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN REGISTERING. CREATE A NEW USERNAME AND PASSWORD - DO NOT USE YOUR BROWN LOGIN/PASSWORD.
