Science Seminars Guide

Many of the Science Departments have a related Seminar course with multiple presentations throughout the semester. This guide serves as a launching point for students to dig deeper into the resources related to some of those presentations.

Spring 2024 Chemistry Presentations

Under each presentation: 

you will find any selected resources as listed on https://blog.richmond.edu/chemseminar/ with links to the resource in the library's OneSearch if available.

Under some of the presentations: 

you will find related resources curated by the science librarian. These resources might be broad overviews of topics or they might be specific. They are meant to serve as a starting point.
