Search portal Scitopia.org, was created with the collaboration of 15 professional science & technology societies to search the contents of the digital libraries of the participating societies, government documents from the DOE Information Bridge and patents from the USPTO and European and Japanese patent databases.
Simple and advanced search options are supplied with the advanced search enabling limits by date and by publisher/society. Retrieval sorts records by society, patents and government documents (as indicated by tabs).
In some instances, particularly to government documents, full-text may be available. While purchasing options are supplied to content retrieved using Scitopia.org, campus libraries often enjoy subscription access to society journals or may already have the document in their collections. Do consult Find It for locating journal articles or MadCat for documents and conference proceedings. If you need assistance, contact a Steenbock librarian.
For publications that campus libraries do not have access, place a request with Library Express.
Many of the Scitopia.org partners also supply free email alerts and RSS feeds to news and newly-published journal articles.
