Structure Drawing in Databases

While some databases are focused on articles, some provide the ability to search for chemical compounds, molecules, reactions, etc. The databases below provide the ability to search for various structures, by name, composition, properties, and even by drawing your own. These features of these databases are more advanced than standard article searching, and questions regarding their use can be referred to both the library, and your instructors, who may have more chemistry specific knowledge.
