New Resources in the Sciences

Acland's DVD Atlas of Human Anatomy for Life Sciences/Health Sciences for Biology and Nursing
These DVDs show true images of real, exquisitely dissected human anatomical specimens, in three dimensions. The specimens rotate in space, as three-dimensional objects.  A concise synchronized narration runs throughout the program. There is the ability for detailed searches of the index and table of contents.

Organic Reactions (Wiley)
Organic Reactions, published annually since 1942 and now available online to the Boston College community, provides authoritative, comprehensive coverage of important synthetic reactions, with critical discussion and tables showing all published examples of the particular reaction.  For each reaction covered, you’ll find an in-depth article discussing the scope and limitations of the reaction, reaction mechanism and stereochemistry, experimental procedures, and comparison to other reaction methods, among other topics.  Search by article title, reaction type or structure.


SpringerMaterials (Springer)
SpringerMaterials is the new, online version of Landolt–Börnstein Numerical Data and Functional Relationships in Science and Technology - New Series, a long-established source for critically-evaluated data in the physical sciences.  Search by keyword, or by element, selecting from the periodic table interface; browse by volume (Groups 1 – VIII), with coverage including Elementary Particles, Nuclei and Atoms; Molecules and Radicals; Condensed Matter; Physical Chemistry; Geophysics; Astronomy and Astrophysics; Biophysics; and Advanced Materials and Technologies.
