Search Tips

Wildcards

Words may be right-hand truncated using an asterisk ('*') in place of other characters. The '*' wildcard may also be embedded in a search string. You may use '?' to replace a single character anywhere within a word.

Examples : environment* polic*, wom?n

Boolean Operators

Use "and" or "or" to specify multiple words in any field, any order. Use "and not" to exclude words.

Example : stocks and bonds

Example : (alaska or canada) and (adventure and not vacation)

Field limits

A field limit causes the system to search only the specified field for the specified word(s).

Grouping

Keyword search results are usually grouped by relevance to bring the most likely titles to the top of the list. Each group represents a similar level of relevance and results are sorted within the group by date or title. To get an ungrouped result set, use boolean operators to form a complex query.

Search the Entire Collection

While the items you'll find in the Reference Collection can be a terrific place to start your research, more detailed information can be found in the Library's print and eBook collections.  The search box found here is the same as the one on the Library's main page - it can search for books and other material here at the UWinnipeg Library, at libraries in Winnipeg, at libraries across Canada, or even libraries around the world.

 

Shelf Browsing

Chemistry consists of many different subject areas.  If you want to browse either the reference (main floor) or regular (upstairs) collections to find material, I would suggest that you look in the following sections:

QD 1-65 - General Chemistry

QD 71-142 - Analytical Chemistry

QD 146-197 - Inorganic Chemistry

QD 241-414 - Organic Chemistry

QD 414-436 - Biochemistry

QD 450-801 - Physical and Theoretical Chemistry

QD 901-999 - Crystallography

Course Reserves

The University of Winnipeg has instituted a new Course Reserves system, Ares, in order to streamline the reserves process and ensure that all course readings are distributed in accordance with the Copyright Act and the University's Copyright Policy. Using the New system, instructors can submit requests for a variety of resources - both physical and digital - and Reserves staff will ensure copyright compliance before making the items available to students.
