Physics

This library guide is meant to serve as both a current awareness service and a research support tool. Please feel free to contribute your favorite sites and resources via the 'Comments' link below. In so doing you help to make these pages even better.

Welcome!

Welcome to my Libguide to Physics!  So far I am early in the process of building this guide, so I am hopeful that some of you will email some suggestions - your favorite resources in physics news, media, tutorials, internet sites, feeds, and more - for evaluation and possible inclusion in this resource guide.  This is an ongoing project which is never done -  HONESTLY!  

Where is...

Books on physics may be found in the general collection in the "QC's" which are located on the second floor of the library, back wall, facing the Labuda Theatre.  Physics reference materials are cataloged with a "REF QC..." on the spine of the book and these are shelved in the Reference Collection on the first floor. 

Physics journals can be identified by using the Journal List:  under the heading Electronic Databases click on 'Access our Online Databases & Journal List' link.  Next click on the Blue Tab: DeSales Journal Titles List.  Under 'Browse e-journals by subject' select the Physical Sciences and Mathematics category.  The resulting list will display the Physics titles in our journal collection.
