How to read a scientific article?

Recommended Databases

Use indexes and databases to locate articles, technical reports, and patents. When you find a citation for an article, you need to check the CAMEO library catalog to see if Carnegie Mellon owns that journal or conference proceedings. If Carnegie Mellon Library does not own the item, you can use ILLiad, the interlibrary loan service to have the materials sent to you.

For a comprehensive list of electronic indexes and databases available at Carnegie Mellon, see Databases by Subject.

You can search individual databases, or you can search multiple databases at one using MetLib.
