Research

 

 

Our Web site provides access to a wide array of databases and other resources. Here are some options you may not have already discovered:

Institutional Repository
Our CODA database can host your research papers and other data on our server in a perpetually maintained and discoverable archive. CODA is where your dissertation will reside after you graduate; the electronic copy is the copy of record.  See some examples here.

Interlibrary Loan
Through our DocuServe interlibrary loan service we can get almost any resource you need, including copies of journal articles, books, and dissertations. We pride ourselves on our rapid fulfillment of your requests.

Scholarly Communication
Faculty members and librarians are concerned over the cost of scholarly journals, the barriers to access created by the ever-increasing costs, and the extent to which scholarly information should be more-or-less freely available as a public good. Learn more at Scholarly Communication and at For Authors.

Recommend Materials for Purchase
Librarians will purchase books, e-books, journals, CDs, and other material for the Library collection in support of your research. Send email to library AT caltech.edu or contact us.

 

Publishing

Getting ready to publish?  SPARC, Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition, offers some valuable advice:

  • The author is the copyright holder
  • Assigning your rights matters
  • The copyright holder controls the work
  • Transferring copyright doesn't have to be all or nothing
  • Read the publication agreeement very carefully


Caltech Library Services page  For Authors provides additional information.

Timothy K. Armstrong, a copyright specialist at the University of Cincinnati College of Law, has written a paper on publication agreements for authors.

 

Value of institutional repositories
