About the Science Collection

Our resources support the needs of specialists working in academia and business, and can support multidisciplinary research interests.

You can perform detailed searches of your subject area using our wide range of electronic databases enabling you to find the most relevant journal articles and research publications.

We have an extensive collection of journals including scholarly peer-reviewed journals and trade and professional journals, an increasing amount of which are available electronically within our reading rooms.

As the national library we have most of the scientific monographs published in the UK and a large proportion of the English-language journals published in Europe and North America. Access to this extensive range of material is available in our dedicated Science Reading Rooms.

We also have available the harder to find material including large collections of conference proceedings, research reports and statistic series as well as access to UK Doctoral thesis through EThos online. This is in addition to the wide ranging collections of patents, market research, trade and business directories, company and financial information.
