For a collection of Open Access journals, see the Directory of Open Access Journals.
CAS/American Chemistry Society has released a slew of resources, including a protein target thesaurus, articles on targeting ACE2, insights on new vaccines and treatments, and current research and development on therapeutic agents and vaccines, and tools to aid researchers in fighting COVID-19.
A-Z Databases is a searchable list of all the databases the Research Library actively subscribes to.
The major databases available through the Research Library are:
Primo (the main library catalog search)
ProQuest (once known as SciTech Premium Collection)
ProQuest currently includes the Coronavirus Research Database, a "free health and medical research database for openly available content related to the COVID-19 outbreak" made available during the pandemic.
There is also a listing of Open Access databases, with an emphasis on science and technology.
LANL employees: You can now schedule a remote instructional session with a librarian from LANL’s Research Library. The meeting will take place on Webex and can involve as many people as you want to attend the session. The session can cover anything from a general overview of library resources to more specific resources and tools, such as Los Alamos Authors, RASSTI, or creating an ORCiD profile.
If you are interested in setting up a library instruction session, contact the library via the chat box on this page or see this RL blog post for more information.
Note: there will be no in-person library reference services starting March 16. Books returned to the Research Library during this period will not be checked in until the stay at home order is lifted. Please hold onto your books until the Research Library is actively staffed for in-person services.
Only mission critical requests will be filled for materials that are only available by going on site (e.g. books, scanning reports, etc) to enforce current social distancing rules.
For COVID-19 specific resources, please see our COVID-19 research guide.
