Databases (for Bethel Users)

MathSciNet is an electronic publication offering access to a carefully maintained and easily searchable database of reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information for much of the mathematical sciences literature. Over 80,000 new items are added each year, most of them classified according to the Mathematics Subject classification. Authors are uniquely identified, enabling a search for publications by individual author rather than by name string. Continuing in the tradition of the paper publication Mathematical Reviews (MR),which was first published in 1940, expert reviewers are selected by a staff of professional mathematicians to write reviews of the current published literature; over 60,000 reviews are added to the database each year. Extending the MR tradition, MathSciNet contains over 2 million items and over 700,000 direct links to original articles. Bibliographic data from retrodigitized articles dates back to 1864.(source: vendor website)

Online Resources (free to All Users)

MathDL: Mathematical Sciences Digital Library
"Provides online resources for both teachers and students of collegiate mathematics, including a new MAA publication, the Journal of online mathematics and its applications (JOMA); a catalog of mathematics commercial products, complete with editorial reviews, reader ratings and discussion groups; digital classroom resources, a collection of mathematics instructional material with authors' statements and reader reviews."(Source: WorldCat)
The Mathematical Atlas : A Gateway to Modern Mathematics
"A collection of short articles designed to provide an introduction to the areas of modern mathematics and pointers to further information, as well as answers to some common (or not!) questions."(Source: WorldCat)
Mathematical Functions
Wolfram Research's Mathematical Functions site was created as a resource for the educational, mathematical, and scientific communities. It contains a collection of information about mathematical functions. The site also details the interrelationships between the special functions of mathematical physics and the elementary functions of mathematical analysis as well as the interrelationships between the functions in each group.

MathWorld: The Web's Most Extensive Mathematics Resource
"MathWorld is a comprehensive and interactive mathematics encyclopedia intended for students, educators, math enthusiasts, and researchers. Like the vibrant and constantly evolving discipline of mathematics, this site is continuously updated to include new material and incorporate new discoveries."(Source: WorldCat)
The University of Michigan Historical Mathematics Collection
"A growing library of books selected from the University of Michigan mathematics collection that have been digitized to improve access and to preserve the content of these books. All of the books in this collection were published in the 19th or early 20th century." Indexing allows browsing the entire collection by author or title, as well as basic word/phrase, proximity and Boolean searches.(Source: WorldCat)
