MaterialsNetBase and ChemLibNetBase

Princeton University Libraries now have access to two more collections in the CRCnetBASE e-books collection.

MaterialsNetBase – From ceramics and textiles to bioscience and pharmacology, this dynamic library of handbooks, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and treatises explains the theory, data, and processes shaping diverse materials applications

ChemLibNetBase – This collection combines historical works and sub-specialty primers with the research from the world’s leading chemical authorities. Coverage ranges from nanoscience and natural product chemistry to separation methods and surfactant science.

A little about using CRCnetBase
Searching: Perform a basic keyword search or advanced keyword, title, and/or author search. A keyword search searches the full text of an ebook. To search only the titles in Princeton’s collection, be sure to check the "Full Access Content Only" box under the search box. You can also select which collection to search in using the Advanced Search.

Downloading: Downloading and saving of PDFs is allowed, but can only be done one chapter or section at a time.

Printing: Printing is also on a one chapter at a time basis.

Additional Functionality: Sign up for a personal account to create a bookshelf and save searches.

PhysicsNetBase, Numerical Recipes, Green Energy Portal – new resources

There are three new online resources for the engineering and sciences available at Princeton.

PhysicsNetBase From astrophysics to quantum physics, materials science to optoelectronics, this unified e-library offers fundamental theories and contemporary investigations of time, matter, and space. It includes many volumes from the world-renowned Institute of Physics.

Numerical Recipes – Unlimited on-line access to both Numerical Recipes Electronic (the Numerical Recipes book in electronic format) and Numerical Recipes Code (the machine readable code). You will need to install a plug-in to access this item. Instructions for installing the plug in are found in the "How to get started…" link on the main menu.

Green Energy Portal – From the Department of Energy, this database contains both current and historical research, including bibliographic citations, technical reports and patent information on different types of renewable energy resources and energy conservation. Subject areas include but are not limited to solar, wind, bioenergy, hydroelectric, geothermal, tidal and wave power, and energy storage.
