For New Arrivals: Getting Started with Your Library



Let's face it, navigating the universe of scientific information is complicated. Your Libraries are here to help you. This checklist will help get you set up and ready to do literature research in chemistry. If you're an experienced chemist just new to UT, this list will help you figure out where everything is and jump-start your research.
