New @ Becker Library: Database Updates

New Books, Journals and eBooks at Becker Library


Grants Index now available on the Web of Science platform

Clarivate Analytics released the Grants Index on the Web of Science platform in January 2024. The Grants Index contains over 5 million grant award records, 1953 to present, from over 400 funding agencies and more than 15 countries.   

Start in the Web of Science platform from the A-Z Database list or from the Suggested Resources on Becker Library’s homepage.

To select the Grants Index use the Search in drop down. Select Grants Index to search only the Grants Index or select All to include the Grants Index with the other available options.

To find grant records for WashU, select the search filter of address, and enter WUSTL in the search box.

The Grants Index is useful for learning more about funded projects but as with any resource, the data are not perfect.
