Mathematics and Statistics

This guide will help you find information about mathematics and statistics.

One Search

The Meriam Library's One Search service allows users to search almost all of the databases available to users simultaneously. You'll find One Search on the Library's homepage.

Specific Databases

Some users may find it advantageous to search for articles in a database that is specific to mathematics and statistics, or includes an easily accessible subset of relevant content. This allows them to avoid irrelevant search results that can occur in a more comprehensive search service such as One Search.

  • MathSciNet -- Reviews and citations to research literature in mathematics and related areas compiled from Mathematical Reviews and Current Mathematical Publications.
  • Science Direct -- The world's largest scientific, technical and medical (STM) database. Comprehensive and peer-reviewed titles. Over 1800 journals from Elsevier Science. Over four million articles and over 59 million abstracts from all fields of science.
