Hi, my name is Sarah Siddiqui and I am your LLE Librarian at Carlson Library. I help faculty and students locate useful information resources and tools for their research and study. I also teach library classes & workshops, create online resources/course guides, and manage the physics, optics, astronomy, and laser energetics collections for River Campus Libraries.
This guide provides the most widely used information resources and tools for the Laboratory for Laser Energetics. If you have more questions, or need help on finding articles and books, managing your report citations, or anything else, please contact me! I am happy to meet with you and discuss any of your information resources needs. You can also contact me by email, phone, or online chat. My contact information can be found in the "LLE Librarian" box to the right below my picture in this guide.
Use the Catalog Search in Articles, Books & More to search specifically for books or journal titles or other materials available at the University of Rochester Library. Use the full Articles & Books for searching for article authors and titles.
If you want to read articles from a specific journal, use the eJournals to navigate through the journal by publication year, volume number, issue number, page number.
For a more general article search, you may choose one of the databases to start.
The USPTO provides a good explanation of the Patent Application process.
