GEORGIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY School of Civil and Environmental Engineering CEE 8813 Materials Science of Concrete Some Useful Resources for Searching Academic Literature Searching Databases Georgia Tech subscribes to a number of databases that catalog papers published in archival journals. To access the databases from the Georgia Tech library home page ( www.library.gatech.edu) , under the “Search and Locate” tab, highlight and click “Search the Databases”. This should lead to a new screen offering a search of the databases, an alphabetical list of the databases, or a list of databases by subject (i.e., “engineering”, “civil engineering”). On that screen, it is often best to use the search function to link to one of these databases: “Web of Science” or “ISI Citation Databases” - quite comprehensive in most fields, listing citations from mid-20 th century in most fields; provides some links to actual articles; can view number of citations for each article. “Current Contents” - contains citations from journals since 1992. “PapersFirst” – contains citations from conference proceedings (including ACI special publications) since 1993. Once a database has been selected, you’ll be prompted to give your gtID (NNXX) and password.
