Like many University Libraries, the University of Maryland Libraries face multiple challenges in the effort to build and maintain collections and provide access to the resources needed to support the institutional research and teaching mission.

The collection budget at UMCP, like many other institutions, has failed to keep up with the rising costs of the information marketplace. One result of these budgetary constraints is that the Libraries' subscription to Phase Equilibria Diagrams Online will not be renewed. Access to the database will end March 31, 2017.

Alternatives to Phase Equilibria Diagrams Online include the following resources:

Books - search the UMD Libraries' catalog using the terms such as binary phase diagram*, phase equilibrium, phase equilibria, phase transitions, phase transformations. Selected books are listed below: 

Databases - use Database finder 

Free online sources

To find other sources, please consult the guide Materials Science & Engineering Resources.

For further questions, please contact the engineering librarian, Elizabeth Soergel (
