Library resources for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
Covers approximately 1600 mathematical journals as indexed in the American Mathematical Society’s publications Mathematical Reviews (QA 1 M3) and Current Mathematical Publications (Z 6653 C63). Coverage: 1940 – present.
Covers publications in statistics and related fields. CIS is a joint venture of the American Statistical Association and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. Coverage: 1974 – present.
ProQuest Statistical Insight combines Index and abstract records previously available from print indexes: American Statistics Index (ASI) from 1973, and Index to International Statistics (IIS)from 1980
arXiv.org is an e-print repository to over 1 million papers in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Quantitative Biology, Quantitative Finance and Statistics. Just UC Davis Mathematics arXiv Preprints from 2004-present are also available.
A database created from the “Jahrbuch über die Fortschritte der Mathematik.” Coverage: 1868-1942
Zentralblatt MATH is the world’s most complete and longest running abstracting and reviewing service in pure and applied mathematics. The database contains more than 2.0 million entries drawn from more than 2300 serials and journals. While we do not have a subscription to this database, searchers can view up to the first three reviews of each result set. Coverage: 1868 – present.
Articles from popular magazines and scholarly journals for the humanities, social sciences, physical and biological sciences, engineering, business and interdisciplinary fields, with over 5,500 full-text periodicals. Also includes indexing for some newspapers, books and primary sources. Coverage: 1887 – present.
Contains citations to items in over 6,000 journals, books, conference proceedings, and technical reports, in all areas of the life sciences and biology, including bioengineering, and biostatistics. Coverage: 1969 – present.
Most comprehensive bibliographic database of engineering research literature, containing references to over 5000 engineering journals and conferences. Coverage: 1884 – present.
Citations from scholarly journals, conference proceedings, books, reports, and dissertations in physics, electrical engineering and electronics, computers and control, and information technology. Coverage: 1898 – present.
PubMed is the National Library of Medicine’s search service that provides access to over 11 million citations in MEDLINE, PreMEDLINE, and other related databases, with links to participating online journals. Coverage: 1950s – present.
Scopus indexes, selectively abstracts and provides citation analysis for approximately 20,000 peer-reviewed journals from more than 5,000 international publishers, as well as 2,600 open access journals, published sets of conference proceedings, trade publications, books, patents (from the USPTO, European Patent Office, Japan Patent office, World Intellectual Property Organization and the UK Intellectual Property Office) and millions of selected web pages. Coverage extends across disciplines in the life and health sciences, the physical sciences, the social sciences and the arts and humanities.
Use Web of Science to find scholarly articles in all disciplines, including chemical engineering and materials science. This database can also be used to identify articles that cite an author or article that you specify. Coverage: 1900 – present. Cited Reference Searching: 1900 – present.
Online subscriptions: the catalog will give the link. NOTE: we sometimes get online content for different years from different sources, R-E-A-D the fine print.
Print subscriptions: the catalog will give you the call number, location, and indicate whether or not it is checked out.
Lists only online journals that UC Davis has an online subscription to. If we have a print subscription, the journal will not be listed here.
(formerly Harvest Catalog) The Library Catalog tells you what the UC Davis library owns, what the call number is, where it is located, and whether or not it is checked out. If there is an electronic version that we subscribe to, the link will be in the catalog.
Use the catalog to locate books, journals, government documents, dissertations, maps, music scores & recordings, movies, and any other materials the library owns.
|MELVYL UC LIBRARY CATALOG MELVYL HELP
The MELVYL catalog tells you what all UC campus libraries own, and also searches other institutions. As with the UCD Library Catalog, MELVYL gives records for books, journals, government documents, dissertations, maps, music scores & recordings, movies, and other materials.
Library catalogs only search catalog entries (author, title, subject indexing, etc) not the full text of the book.
Google Books searches full-text of books (only titles that Google has scanned), but you cannot access most of them (because they are still under copyright).
But you can use Google Books to identify titles you might be interested in.
–Use Google Books to search for phrases or topics you are intereted in (works well for technical terms).
–Then search for the title of the book(s) in the UCD Library Catalog or Melvyl
OCLC catalog: millions of records for books, journal titles and materials in other formats from approximately 12,000 libraries worldwide.
Coverage: 1000 A.D. to the present.
|MATHnetBASE– Full-text searchable database collection of over 125 handbooks, textbooks and manuals from CRC Press.
|STATSnetBASE– Full-text searchable database collection of almost 100 statistics handbooks, textbooks and manuals from CRC Press.
|Frontiers in Mathematics– v.1750 (2000) – present.
|Lecture Notes in Mathematics– v.1750 (2000) – present.

EndNote is citation management software that allows you to store, manage, and format bibliographic citations, and easily change formatting of citations in Word documents. Available, and free to UC Davis students, faculty & staff (campus has a site license).
Two versions are available:
These free tools prompt you to enter in the components of a citation, and configure the elements according to APA guidelines. Make sure you verify the accuracy of your results by consulting the Publication Manual!
Developed by the North Carolina State University Libraries.
This site is maintained by the Hekman Library at Calvin College in Michigan. Select ‘APA’ from the Citation Styles menu.
Select the type of source you are citing and complete the web form. For books, you can enter an ISBN to populate the form automatically.
This tool is useful if you only need to generate citations for a couple of sources.
