I am trying to find the curve describing the specific heat of aluminum as a function of temperature between about 50K to 300K(or room temperature) for an experiment I am doing. Ultimately I need to integrate between those bounds. Google doesn't seem to provide any useful links. I was able to find some values at specific temperatures, but not enough data to produce a curve.

Any references to places that might contain this sort of data are welcome.
