Physics-Astronomy Library, University of California, Berkeley
            Recommended Physics & Astronomy Databases - search for articles in many journals.
The Physics-Astronomy Library provides access to journals in print and electronic formats. Articles from journals not owned by any UC Library can be requested Melvyl or Interlibrary Loan.

To find articles related to your research, search article databases that index many journals, conference proceedings, and other sources. Most of these databases include citations and abstracts with links to full text. To get the full text, use the UC-eLinks button.
