Databases of the week - Accelerate your research by using xSearch, Funding Resources, and Chemical Safety search

November 11, 2019
by Grace Baysinger

One challenge that researchers face is where to look for information.   Google Scholar is popular but doesn’t include the wide array of resources licensed by the Stanford Libraries.  Google Scholar (GS) search results are also limited by the last time GS crawled a website.    Current students, faculty, and staff at Stanford are able to use three customized collections of databases to find needed information.  Developed by the Stanford Libraries and Deep Web Technologies, these databases are grouped by subject categories and multiple subject categories can be searched at one time.   Up to 100 citations are available from each database and the information is retrieved in real-time.
