MRS Proceedings Online

We have just completed negotiations for access to the complete library of MRS (Materials Research Society) Proceedings!

The MRS Online Proceedings Library features over 30,000 peer-reviewed papers presented at MRS Meetings. The proceedings papers can be viewed sorted by meeting by selecting a meeting from the list on the left side of this page. Proceedings can also be viewed sorted by topic.

These proceedings are available directly at:

Unfortunately, the way the site is arranged makes linking impossible from Google Scholar, UC-eLinks and Compendex, but Compendex does index the papers pretty well and a Google search works well for pulling up papers by title. Access is available from campus or from Web or client VPN.

I hope you are as excited about this as I am, let me know what you think! This is a fairly expensive package so we will want to have plenty of justification for continuing it in the future.
