This guide will provide you with information about resources available through Scholes Library to help support learning, teaching, and engineering research
The Engineering Librarian provides a number of services including:
This resource guide has links and information to help you navigate the wide variety of resources you'll use in engineering. Among these are:
Databases, which contain articles from many different journals. While there are some general databases, you'll find that using one focused on engineering and/or science will lead to more relevant results and allow more sophisticated searching. If you're trying to track down a citation, you may want to focus your search within a particular journal.
Standards, which are guidelines or rules for products, processes, test methods, and materials. Standards are developed and followed in order to produce a level of uniformity, interoperability, reliability, or means of comparison even when different parties are involved.
Technical Reports, which describe the progress or results of scientific or technical research and development. These documents generally do not go through the same peer review process that an academic journal article might, but they are important sources of professional knowledge. These are often published by the organization which did and/or sponsored the research.
You'll also find information specific to your engineering work here at Alfred, including Technical Communications and theses.
