Search with a tool that suits your needs/research field

When you are not satisfied with TREE's search function or when you want to use individual search tools that better suits your purpose/research field, access GACoS to know more about what kind of search tools are available.
GACoS has links to search tools available at the University of Tokyo and you can look for databases depending on material type, search topic, and database name.

(Example of standard databases) (See 【To access databases and e-journals at home/during business trips】)

To find out which search tool is relevant to your research, it is helpful to ask for an advice to people who are in the same research field such as your supervisor and seniors at your lab.
