Given the recent changes to move classes online and suspend a majority of research in labs, it is important to understand the choices available to discover and access online information.

Abstract

This Zoominar will discuss options available to UVA researchers and students for navigating such resources, with an emphasis on accessing them off-Grounds, and how to obtain information we may not have readily available. This Zoominar will concentrate on resources for searching for materials science data, including chemical and physical properties, phase diagrams, spectra and corrosion data. Some resources that will be discussed: ASM Handbooks Online, SpringerMaterials, AccessEngineering, ICSD and more.
