ICSD is the world's largest database for completely identified inorganic crystal structures. ICSD contains about 156,000 peer-reviewed data entries, including their atomic coordinates, dating back to 1973.
- 1,675 crystal structures of the elements
- 30,075 records for binary compounds
- 58,371 records for ternary compounds
- 55,754 records for quarternary and quintenary compounds
About 119,000 entries (75.9% of entries) have been assigned a structure type. There are currently 6,357 structure prototypes.
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.
Cambridge Structural Database is a repository for small-molecule organic and metal-organic crystal structure. It contains over 500,000 x-ray and neutron diffraction analyses. It provides 3D structures with respective coverage of the published literature. The structural data is curated and enriched with bibliographic, chemical and physical property information. More than 40,000 new structures are added to the database each year. The database is useful for Crystallography, Structure-based drug design, Medicinal chemistry, Pharmaceutical formulation and development, Material science, and Education.
How to find the call number (or otherwise access) a Materials Research Society Symposium Proceedings
U-M owns most of the Materials Research Society Symposia Proceedings, but it can sometimes be difficult to find where they are located.
For a proceeding published from 1998 to the present, check to see if there is a digital version in the Materials Research Society Online Symposia Proceedings.
For a proceeding published prior to 1998, or for which there is no electronic version, first try a "Word(s) anywhere" search in Mirlyn Classic, using "Materials Research Society" and the volume number; e.g.:
Materials Research Society 588
If that doesn't work, try a title words search with the title of the Symposium; e.g.:
Advanced Cementitious Systems
Alternately to using MIRLYN, or if the MIRLYN tactics don't work, you can use the Materials Research Society Proceedings 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.
The ASM Failure Analysis Center features over 1000 case histories along with authoritative handbook information on failure mechanisms and analysis methods. The Failure Analysis Center enables you to find specific information to help you quickly solve your own failure analysis or materials performance issues.
ASM Failure Analysis Center content areas:
- Case Histories in Failure Analysis, featuring more than one thousand case histories for a broad range of materials, environments, and industries.
- ASM Handbook, Volume 11, Failure Analysis and Prevention, featuring the complete content of the most comprehensive reference book available on failure analysis.
The Micrograph Center is a comprehensive collection of micrograph images and associated data. The emphasis of the collection is on micrographs for industrially important alloys. Information captured for each image includes material designation and composition, processing history, service history, metallographic preparation/technique, magnification, significance of the structures shown, selected materials properties data, and other relevant data.
Search across ASM property data, performance charts, and processing guidelines for specific metals and alloys. Includes five content areas:
- Data Sheets & Diagrams: Features thousands of documents in PDF format, including material data sheets from Alloy Digest and other ASM publications; heat treating data sheets from the Heat Treater's Guides; and time-temperature curves, creep curves, and fatigue curves. All organized by alloy and fully searchable.
- Alloy Finder: Features alloy designations and trade names from around the world. Find key information, including composition, producer, tensile properties, and similar alloys.
- Materials Property Database: Features mechanical properties, physical properties, and processing characteristics for most industrially important alloys. Find data plotted over a range of temperatures.
- Coatings Data: Features detailed information for commercial coating processes. Search by trade name, manufacturer, process type, coating type, or key words.
- Corrosion Data: Features corrosion information for specific alloys in specific environments. Search by alloy or environment.
Source of phase diagrams for oxides, salts, carbides, nitrides, borides, compound semiconductors, and chalcogenides.
Phase Online functionality includes:
- Search commentaries and diagrams by chemical system, published author’s last name, volume, language, publications year, and figure number.
- View diagram’s chemical system, figure number, figure notes, references, commentary and footnotes.
- Manipulate diagrams with zoom in/out, lever rule, curve follow, mirror, Mol% to Wt% or Wt% to Mol% and built-in calculator.
This collection provides unmatched discipline-specific coverage spanning thousands of publications, many in full text.
