A guide to the major resources for mathematics.

- Math OverflowInitiated in 2009, Math Overflow has become a popular forum for mathematicians to ask and answer questions.

Unlike searching on regular text in online literature sources, searching on equations presents a challenge because equations that cannot be expressed in a single line or which rely on typrographic tools such as LaTeX or MathML or images cannot be managed in conventional search engines. A number of tools have been developed to address this challenge.

- LaTeX Search BetaPowered by Springer, enables searching on LaTex-formatted equations as well as on article titles and DOIs.
- Sentido SearchA semantic-based search engine.
- zbMath FormulaeSearch engine for mathematical formulae in documents indexed in zbMATH.

- Handbooks of Tables in the Tufts CatalogMathematics -- Tables is a formal subject heading in most academic catalogs. Other subjects that rely on tabular information also have Tables as a sub-heading.

- Linear Algebra ToolkitApplications and step by step demonstrations of solutions to linear equations.
- Wolfram AlphaDynamic computations based on a vast collection of built-in data, algorithms, and methods.

- History of Mathematical NotationsPrint: Tisch Book Stacks QA21 .C135
- NIST on NotationsFrom the NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions.
- Unicode Support for MathematicsHow the Universal Character Set works with math notation.
- W3C Guide on Entities, Characters and FontsGuidance for expressing mathematical symbols on the web. Describes ISO Entity Set Groupings.
- Sources on Mathematical Notation in the Tufts LibrariesOther sources on this topic can be identified via the BLC WorldCat catalog.

- Open Problem LibraryFormerly known as the National Problem Library.
- Open Problem LibrariesDirectory of freely-available problem sets from various institutions.
- Tufts Libraries ResourcesBooks and periodicals classified under the Subject Heading: Mathematics -- Problems, exercises, etc. A related Subject Heading is Mathematics - Competitions.
- Springer Problem BooksTufts subscribes to the more recent volumes in this series of monographs focusing on various types of problems.
