Research (not to mention graduate school!) is a complex business. To make it a bit easier, here are some resources available to us.
Electronic resources: resources for writing, analyzing data, doing synthesis, and more!
SMC's Chemical Inventory (ask current SMC member for password)
Instruments and Equipment: our physical tools for performing research!
Mental Health: resources for maintaining good mental health while doing research
Techniques & Standard Operating Procedures: how to do chemistry safely and effectively in the SMC lab
If you notice something broken that is not 'owned' by SMC - like burned out lightbulbs - report the problem using guidelines published by Polacksbaken.
