Descriptions of analytical methods and instrumental techniques are found in an astonishing variety of resources. Because of this wide variety of sources and the extensive time period over which they have been published, developing an effective literature searching methodology is absolutely essential for students, research faculty, and practicing chemists. This article covers traditional methodologies and basic resources. In addition, recent widespread adoption of electronic journals and reference works, plus the virtually universal adoption of Google searching, are substantially transforming literature searching methodology.
