Are they at MIT?
Barton is the MIT Libraries' Catalog and contains the location of all library materials. Remember, it contains titles, authors, and subject headings for books, journal names, and conference proceedings - NOT the titles and authors of articles contained within them.
VERA is the MIT Libraries' list of electronic journals and databases (where you can search for journal and conference articles).
If MIT doesn't own it, you can get it for FREE through Interlibrary Borrowing.
