Reference sources (dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, guides, and standards) are a great place to start when exploring a topic. You will find definitions, overviews, facts, and explanations of basic scientific concepts. The print and electronic resources listed below include some of the available Chemistry sources. To find additional materials check UNB WorldCat or the Reference Materials database.
To search for books at UNB Libraries (Saint John and Fredericton), use the library's online catalogue, UNB WorldCat. Books may be requested from the Fredericton libraries through document delivery.
