In your career at Purdue, you will...
Purdue Libraries can help with all of this, if you know where to look and who to ask.

Journals & Books
Off Campus Access
Go through the Libraries' website. This will proxy you through our system, and the database and journal websites will know you're affiliated with Purdue.
Create your own personal database of references relevant to you and your work. You can organize and share them, and even automatically generate bibliographies in your word documents.
You have a lot of options for citation managers, and it largely comes down to personal preference. Options include Zotero (free, open source), EndNote (free online, but the desktop version can be expensive), Mendeley (freemium), and many more.
ChemDraw and MestRe Nova are available. See the Chemistry Software tab of this guide.
