This guide provides a detailed outline of the call numbers of the library's mathematics books, which range from QA1 to QA939. Using this guide will help you to quickly and easily locate books for a particular mathematical subject area.

Need help with a math course? Need to brush up on a math topic? Check out the Brooklyn College Library's list of mathematics help websites. Includes sites on Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus, Linear Algebra, History of Mathematics, and more. Also includes links to online calculators and mathematics encyclopedias.

Save time! Search across multiple mathematics research databases at once!

Databases included: Library Catalog, MathSciNet, Academic Search Complete, ERIC, ScienceDirect, Scopus, Gale Virtual Reference Library, JSTOR, and Springerlink.

MathSciNet is a comprehensive database covering the world's mathematical literature since 1940, with some bibliographic data going back to the early 1800s. The site provides access to the bibliographic data and reviews of mathematical research literature contained in the Mathematical Reviews Database, as well as over one million direct links to the original articles. Users can search by publication, journal, author, or citation.

A list of SIAM Journals available online through the Brooklyn College Library. Note that different journals are available through different databases.

The premier full-text resource for coverage of the research and development spectrum of the applied sciences and computing disciplines, containing full-text for more than 1,400 journals with coverage dating back to 1913.

ERIC, the Educational Resource Information Center, provides access to education literature and resources, including many articles about mathematics education.

JSTOR is a not-for-profit organization with a dual mission to create and maintain a trusted archive of important scholarly journals, and to provide access to these journals as widely as possible. JSTOR offers both multidisciplinary and discipline-specific collections, covering such topics as Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, Business, Language & Literature, Mathematics & Statistics, Music, Ecology & Botany. JSTOR is not a current issues database. Because of JSTOR's archival mission, there is a gap, typically from 1 to 5 years, between the most recently published journal issue and the content available in JSTOR.

ScienceDirect is a database of abstracts and full-text articles from journals published by Elsevier. It includes dozens of mathematics journals.

Scopus indexes and abstracts over 14,000 journals in the sciences and social sciences, including mathematics. Scopus has an exceptionally user-friendly interface and is an excellent database for students and novice researchers.

SpringerLink is a database of abstracts and full-text articles from journals published by Springer. It includes dozens of mathematics journals.

Wiley Interscience is a database of abstracts and full text from journals and books published by Wiley. It includes dozens of mathematics titles.

Google Scholar searches the Web for articles, books, and other scholarly materials in many different disciplines. Most searches return an assortment of citations, abstracts, and links to full text. Link to Google Scholar from the Brooklyn College Library's website to access our electronic journal holdings via a “Find fulltext at Brooklyn” link next to any item the library has electronically. It’s a great way to save time and avoid publisher paywalls.

The above link to Google Scholar requires off-campus users to authenticate and yields search results that indicate which articles are available electronically through the BC Library. To bypass authentication, go to http://scholar.google.com/

A collection of resources (free & subscription) for locating full text books online.

A tool for identifying which Brooklyn College-owned journals are available in electronic format.

Open access to over 900,000 e-prints in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Quantitative Biology, and Quantitative Finance and Statistics.

Educational resources supported by federal agencies; includes resources for mathematics education.

The Math Forum, created by Drexel University's School of Education, provides resources, materials, activities, person-to-person interactions, and educational products and services that enrich and support mathematics teaching and learning in an increasingly technological world.

MathWorld is a comprehensive encyclopedia of mathematics from Wolfram Research.

Wolfram Alpha is a computational knowledge engine. It is not a search engine; rather, it generates output by doing computations from its own internal knowledge base. The best way to get an idea of its scope and capabilities is to view its Examples page.

Founded in 1888 to further mathematical research and scholarship, the American Mathematical Society fulfills its mission through programs and services that promote mathematical research and its uses, strengthen mathematical education, and foster awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and to everyday life.

The Association for Women in Mathematics encourages women and girls to study and have active careers in the mathematical sciences

The Mathematical Association of America is the largest professional society that focuses on mathematics accessible at the undergraduate level.

SIAM exists to ensure the strongest interactions between mathematics and other scientific and technological communities through membership activities, publication of journals and books, and conferences.
