Major Research Tools

Full-text, Index

A search engine for the archive of math pre-prints maintained at Cornell University. (Mathematicians can submit their work to the archive before it is published so it can quickly be disseminated to the mathematical community.)

Gateway

Search engine for scholarly materials including journal articles. Be sure to use WebBridge to link to Lafayette's resources. Note: if accessing from off-campus, go to "Scholar Preferences" and search "Library Links" for "Lafayette." Check "Lafayette College - Lafayette WebBridge" to make WebBridge appear in search results.
