Web of Science is the web version of Science Citation Index (SCI) and Social Science Citation Index (SSCI). Web of Science accesses a multidisciplinary database of bibliographic information gathered from thousands of scholarly journals. The databases are indexed so you can search for specific articles by subject, author, journal, and/or author address. Because the information stored about each article includes the article’s cited reference list (often called its bibliography), you can also search the databases for articles that cite a known author or work.

Coverage for these databases has now been extended back to 1970 for both the Science Citation Index and Social Science Citation Index. The library is grateful for funds donated to Friends of the Library that were used to help make this purchase possible.
