Information Resources For Engineering Graduate Students

This guide will introduce you to the resources and services of the Engineering Library.

Journal Articles & Conference Papers

These types of literature provide the most up-to-date information and are much more likely to have information on narrower topics not easily located in books. The Online Catalog does not provide in-depth indexing of all the topics treated in an individual book and cannot be used to find journal articles on a particular subject. These publications are normally published more rapidly than books and should provide the latest information on a topic

Electronic Journals

E - journals can be accessed in a number of different ways, through our online catalog, and from our A to Z Title List of Electronic Journals.  Some can also be accessed from online indexes.  Most of the e - journals we subscribe to can be accessed from anywhere on-campus. Off-campus access to these resources is possible by going through a proxy server. The number of years available online varies by journal title. The electronic journal titles available at a given time will change as we make more resources available in electronic formats.
