PaperChem, a Paper Science Database


Those of you in the Paper Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Imaging department are no doubt aware that Waldo Library provides you access to a paper engineering database called PaperChem (published by the people who bring you Engineering Village). According to the blurb on the site, PaperChem covers the “international literature related to pulp and paper technology. It includes abstracts of journal articles, conference papers and technical reports with more than 500,000 records.” Looking at the usage statistics for this database over the last two years, I’ve noticed that it is only averaging about 150 searches per month. This seems rather low, given how many paper chemistry faculty and students we have in CEAS. Please tell your students about this database, particularly your graduate students who will need to do an extensive literature review for their theses and dissertations. This database should be your and their best friend!! As always, I am more than willing to show them or you how to use this fine resource.
