Argonne Research Library

Supporting the scientific and technical research needs

Argonne’s Research Library contains an extensive collection of print books, journals, and technical report literature. The library provides access to over 20,000 online journals and eBooks. Library services available to Argonne researchers include assistance with research, interlibrary loan, data management, and publication review and approval. The library services are not available to the general public.

The Argonne Library Catalog

The Argonne Library Catalog  allows anyone the ability to search for citations to publications produced by Argonne scientists and researchers since 1991. Please note that this does not represent a comprehensive index of all Argonne publications. At this time, it only includes journal articles, conference papers, and technical reports that have been announced by Argonne National Laboratory to the Department of Energy’s Office of Scientific and Technical Information. For a more comprehensive search, including publications from other National Laboratories, please visit OSTI.

The Argonne Scientific Publications Catalog

The Argonne Scientific Publications catalog is an index of citations; Argonne does not host the full text of these publications.  Where possible, we provide a DOI or link to the document. Full text availability may also be available via OSTI. Where possible, we also provide links to the publicly available data that supports the publication.

Tips for searching The Argonne Scientific Publications Catalog

Use the facets available to narrow your search. Authors names may appear more than once because the Catalog indexes both the names of the authors and the various forms of their names that they use on their publications. Note that the name in the form of Last Name, First Name” will contain all of that author’s publications, regardless of how it appears on the publication.

Search results cannot be narrowed by subject; however, you can narrow by the Argonne Division that produced the publication. Please refer to the chart below to interpret the three letter abbreviations of active divisions. Please note that this is not a comprehensive list of all historical divisions.
