Below, you'll find a list of resources dedicated to help students that are struggling in the sciences. Check back often, as we'll be adding new resources all the time.
CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics
Sci Ref QD 65 .H3
Probably the most familiar source, the CRC handbook is published annually but usually changes little from one year to the next. It contains a variety of useful physical and chemical data, with some references. Some of the data is given in the main table of inorganic compounds, other data appears in separate tables grouped by data type. Not very systematic in choice of data, and indexing can be inconsistent.
A desktop research tool with point and click access to Chemical Abstracts and Medline information. It is a client-server product which requires installation. Contact the Science Librarian for more information. Available for searching in the Chemistry Department and Science Library Tech Room.
The Institute of Scientific Information's premier citation databases in the physical, life, and social sciences. Search for articles that cite a known author or work or by standard search queries. Covers 1970 to the present.

SDBS is an integrated Spectral Data Base System for organic compounds.
Produces and sells a broad range of biochemicals, organic and inorganic chemicals and related products. Parent company of Sigma, Aldrich, Fluka and Supelco.
As an unbiased, multi-disciplinary science organization that focuses on biology, geography, geology, geospatial information, and water, we are dedicated to the timely, relevant, and impartial study of the landscape, our natural resources, and the natural hazards that threaten us.
Physics and Astronomy:
Some Astronomy professors use AceAstronomy to quiz students, but it also contains a great deal of practice problems, diagrams, and applications that allow for a better understanding of basic Astronomy.
The NASA JTrack3D program allows the user to view the locations and paths for satellites in orbit. Physics professors refer to this site during the explanation of gravity.
