CHEM 241: Analytical Methods

About the Kenan Science Library

The Kenan Science Library is on the ground floor of Venable Hall. The Science Library Annex which holds our books is located behind Wilson Library on South Rd. See our library page for locations and hours.



Copies of your textbook and other chemistry textbooks are available at UNC's libraries. You can find them by searching UNC-Chapel Hill's Libraries catalog. Try searching for "chemistry and textbook" (no quotes necessary) as keywords. If you want a specific texbook, you can search for it by title.

Since the Chemistry 101 textbooks are in high demand, some copies are placed on reserve. You can use these in the Reserves Reading Room at the Undergraduate Library.



If your professor has placed materials in Reserves or E-Reserves, here's how to access them. For E-Reserves, go to the Libraries' Reserves page. Click on the link for E-Reserves and Reserves Pages. Search for your course. (Choosing the department is often easiest.) Read and "Accept" the statement of use.

Print reserves can be searched for in the Classic catalog.

Safety and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)

MSDS Sources to Start With

Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) contain information on chemicals and their properties along with health, physical, and environmental hazards. As they are provided by manufacturers, there is no centralized location so you may have to look in multiple places. Begin with the sources listed:
