In addition to traditional books and journal articles, you may also need to locate specialized items such as standards and technical reports, datasets and statistics, images or maps, and patents. This page will help you to figure out where you can find those types of publications.
Sources for standards and technical reports can include government documents, many of which are available online (search the library catalog for those available at Georgia Southern), U.S. Government web sites, and professional organization sites (see Other Resources) Here are a few examples:
Search Mathematics & Statistics
Reference Databases & Tools for Mathematics & Statistics
Online Reference Titles for Mathematics & Statistics
An important part of research is to "follow the trail" of research you find in books, journals and other documents (i.e. locate cited references or bibliographic entries). You can use a service such as the Web of Science Cited Reference Searching tool to do that.
NOTE: if you are off-campus or outside the Georgia Southern University network, you will be prompted for your MyGeorgiaSouthern ID and password to access licensed resources on this page.
