The Polymer Library, formerly Rapra Abstracts,[1] is a searchable database of research on plastics, rubbers, polymeric composites, and adhesives. It includes abstracts from over 450 journals, as well as company literature, data sheets, and patents.[2] The index covers end-use applications and commercial and legal implications, as well as basic research for academic and corporate scientists. The Library is aggregated by EBSCO,[3] ProQuest,[4] and STN.[5]

Its literature coverage goes back to 1972. It was originally published by RAPRA, formerly the Rubber and Plastics Research Association, and is now published by Smithers Rapra.[6][1]
