This online NMR database is for organic structures and their nuclear magnetic resonance (nmr) spectra. It allows for spectrum prediction (13C, 1H and other nuclei) as well as for searching spectra, structures and other properties. It also has peer-reviewed submission of datasets by its users.

Spectra Reference Books
These are reference books (library-use only) that provide a
of topics, identify synonyms, definitions or related terms, or cover
relative data. They usually include
references and lists of further readings.
Aldrich Library of FT-IR Spectra
Call Number: Reference QD96.I5 P66 v.1-3
This three volume set includes over 18,000 FT-IR spectra categorized by chemical functionality and arranged in order of increasing structural complexity. All spectra were run in the Aldrich quality control labs and have been confirmed by other spectroscopic and chromatographic analyses. Includes extensive cross references by chemical name, molecular formula, CAS number, and Aldrich catalog number.
