Materials Science

A collection of links and resources for UAH students and faculty in the Materials Science program (MTS).


Important Note regarding SciFinder database (CAS)

NOTE: If you plan to use the new and updated SciFindern database (AKA "Scifinder-n" on web pages that don't support the superscript " n "), please note that this is available ONLY for current UAH students/faculty/staff.

If you are a UAH student, you can set up an account through this link.

Visit our SciFinder Library Guide for more information about using this resource.




NOTE: Because SciFindern is the new interface from CAS, they have recently provided a series of free webinars to introduce how to use the new SciFindern interface.

If you are interested in viewing any of the recorded webinars, you can find that menu here.

You can also sign up to view future CAS webinars on SciFindern.
