Dictionaries and Encyclopedias provide background material, define key concepts
and vocabulary, and are often a good place to start your research.
Biographical works give background on the mathematicians and their times.

Mathematics and Computer Science are far more decentralized
than many other fields in terms of journal articles. The core mathematics
literature is indexed in MathSciNet, but MathSciNet does not track
mathematics articles that appear in primarily nonmathematics journals. Many
other databases do track articles of interest to the mathematics and
computer science community. If you are working in applied mathematics or
computer science and need a literature database in another field, use the
Database Finder or
ask a reference librarian for assistance.
The electronic databases
listed below are available through the
Charles W. Chesnutt Library. The databases are available on or
off campus. In
order access resources from offcampus, patrons must identify themselves as FSU
affiliates by entering their name, University ID number and library PIN.

Electronic Journals can be accessed through
Journal Finder.
Journal Finder is an integrated search interface that
searches journal, newspaper, magazine, and newsletter titles. Using Journal
Finder you can determine if the library provides electronic access or owns a
print copy, find out which other libraries may have print copies, and order
copies of articles. If a title is listed in Journal Finder then the library
offers immediate online access to a significant amount of full text for that
title and/or the library owns some printed issues of that title.

Founded in 1888 to further mathematical research and scholarship, the American
Mathematical Society fulfills its mission through programs and services that
promote mathematical research and its uses, strengthen mathematical education,
and foster awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to
other disciplines and to everyday life. [quote from web site] This site has a

Math Archives
http://archives.math.utk.edu/
The goal of the Mathematics Archives is to provide organized Internet access to
a wide variety of mathematical resources. The primary emphasis is on materials
which are used in the teaching of mathematics. Currently the Archives is
particularly strong in its collection of educational software. Other areas,
ranging from laboratory notebooks and problem sets to lecture notes and reports
on innovative methods, are growing.
A second strength of the Archives is its extensive collection of links to other
sites that are of interest to mathematicians. Resources available through these
links include electronic journals, preprint services, grant information, and
publishers of mathematical software, texts, and journals.
These educational resources and the organized collection of links combine to
make the Mathematics Archives a comprehensive site for mathematics on the
Internet. [quote from website]
