  • the literature in chemical and medical professions,
  • important ASU Library accounts (interlibrary loan, SciFinder), and
  • specialized databases such as SciFinder and PubMed to find chemical and medical information.

Your Library Accounts

Access these two accounts under 'My Accounts' on the ASU Library home page,

For searching chemical information, a SciFinder account is also necessary:

Post Session Survey

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
