SpringerMaterials comprises 400 Landolt-Bornstein volumes, 44,000 chemical safety documents, a subset of the Dortmund Data Bank Sofatware & Separation Technology comprising 300,000 data points, and the Linus Pauling files on inorganic solid phases. SpringerMaterials is expanded and updated quarterly.
U-M owns most of the SPIE Conference Proceedings, but it can be a bit difficult to find where they are located.
For a proceeding published from 1990 to the present, check to see if there is a digital version in the SPIE Digital Library.
For proceedings published prior to 1990, or for which there is no electronic version, first try a words anywhere search in Mirlyn, using 'SPIE' and the volume number; e.g.:
If that doesn't work, try a title words search with the title of the Conference, but without the roman number number; e.g.:
Lasers in Dentistry
Lasers in Dentistry VI
Alternately to using MIRLYN, or if the MIRLYN tactics don't work, you can use the SPIE Proceedings Call Number Database to look up the call number for the proceeding by title words and/or volume number (but note that this database will not be able to tell you if it is checked out or not).
Failing the above, please contact a reference librarian for assistance.

COS Pivot is a directory of researchers and research funding opportunities that combines two comprehensive, editorially maintained databases: the COS Funding Opportunities database of over 400,000 funding opportunities worth an estimated $33 billion, and the COS Scholar Universe database of 3 million profiles of scholars worldwide. Its proprietary algorithm compiles pre-populated researcher profiles unique to an organization (such as University of Michigan) and matches them to revelant current funding opportunities. This allows U-M users to search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty from inside or outside U-M. Conversely, a search for a given scholar will link to matching funding opportunities.
Note: Access to personalized features requires personal registration and login. COS Pivot replaces the former COS Expertise service.
Access to the journals published by the American Physical Society (APS), including Physical Review Letters, Reviews of Modern Physics, Physical Review A, Physical Review B, Physical Review C, Physical Review D, Physical Review E, Physical Review Special Topics, Physics.
Combines three citation indexes--Arts & Humanities, Science Expanded, and Social Sciences--which permit searching for articles that cite a known author or work, as well as searching by subject, author, journal, and author address. Covers 12,000+ journals.
Provides online full-text access to many of the Springer electronic journals along with many electronic books and series.
