Finding Library Materials on Molecular Modelling

To find materials on Molecular Modelling, search Books, Videos and More (WorldCat Discovery) from the Library's main page ( Make sure you limit to Albertsons Library if you want only those items in the Library's collection. Search terms such as: molecular modelling, molecular structure, "molecular structure" and (modelling or models)

Here are a few examples of the types of materials we have:
