  • Materials Platform for Data Science (MPDS)
    "Online materials database (known as PAULING FILE project) with nearly 2 million entries: physical properties, crystal structures, phase diagrams, available via API, ready for modern data-intensive applications. The source of these entries are about 300,000 peer-reviewed publications in materials science, processed during the last 16 years by an international team of PhD editors. The results are presented online with a quick search interface. The basic access is provided for free. "
  • Materials science: Wikimedia Commons
    Hundreds of media objects related to materials science.
  • MatWeb
    "MatWeb's searchable database of material properties includes data sheets of thermoplastic and thermoset polymers such as ABS, nylon, polycarbonate, polyester, polyethylene and polypropylene; metals such as aluminum, cobalt, copper, lead, magnesium, nickel, steel, superalloys, titanium and zinc alloys; ceramics; plus semiconductors, fibers, and other engineering materials."
  • Mechanical Engineering Commons
    Over 17,000 scholarly articles on various aspects of mechanical engineering.
  • Media History Digital Library
    "We are a non-profit initiative dedicated to digitizing collections of classic media periodicals that belong in the public domain for full public access. The project is supported by owners of materials who loan them for scanning, and donors who contribute funds to cover the cost of scanning. We have currently scanned over 2 million pages, and that number is growing."

  • Microstructure Database
    "Here you will find a collection of atomic microstructures that have been built by the atomic modeling community. Feel free to download any of these and use them in your own scientific explorations.The focus of this cyberinfrastructure is to advance the field of atomic-scale modeling of materials by acting as a forum for disseminating new atomistic scale methodologies, educating non-experts and the next generation of computational materials scientists, and serving as a bridge between the atomistic and complementary (electronic structure, mesoscale) modeling communities. "
