Chemistry: Books and E-books
This guide will introduce chemistry resources available to Pepperdine University students.
Even though Payson Library is physically closed, we can still loan out e-books! To get started searching for an ebook, click the link above that says "Search the Library Catalog", and that will take you to the main page. Type in your words you want to search for in the main box, and hit "Search". You will see all the books, both print and electronic. On the left side of the screen are options to narrow your search, called "filters". Under the filter "Format" are options to limit the search to articles, books, etc. Under "Books" is the subtype "Ebooks". Check the box by "Ebooks", and that will limit your search results to only ebooks. Ebooks that Pepperdine doesn't own can be requested just like a print book. For assistance or clarification, contact Erin McAllister at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call Number Ranges for Chemistry
Circulating Books and Reference Books can both be found on the 1st floor of Payson Library. While Reference Books and Circulating books are not housed in the same location on the 1st floor, they are both organized using Library of Congress call numbers.
In addition to searching for books on chemistry in the library catalog, you can also browse the shelves using these Library of Congress call number ranges to guide you.
