The Library team have curated a list of useful e-resources for students and researchers in Engineering. Email us if you have any specific questions about these resources or general study and research skills.
The index of resources provided by the Judge Business School Library and Information Service is very useful for subjects relating to industry, manufacturing and business.
Online access to around 1800 construction-related Standards through the Construction Information Services.
Online access to ASTM Standards, journals, technical papers etc. through the ASTM Compass portal.
Online access to IEEE Standards through IEEE/IET Electronic Library.
Online access to ASCE Standards.
The library has a small print collection of mainly British Standards. Search in iDiscover for the standard title or author (e.g. “British Standards Institution” or “American Society for Testing and Materials”) or ask the library team.
ESDU (Engineering Sciences Data Unit) Reports: Various items are available in print in the Betty and Gordon Moore library reference collection. These items are non-borrowable. For more information see iDiscover (search for ESDU science data), or email email@example.com.
If you can't access the Standard you need from any of these sources, please get in touch with the library and we will let you know of any other options available. If you would like to purchase any individual British Standards for your work, we may be able to acquire it at a reduced rate.
The Department of Engineering encourages staff to join institutions and societies that relate to their subject areas, and may be able to pay membership fees. For more information, see the Membership of the Professional Engineering Institutions (PEIs) webpage.
Have we missed a useful institution or society from the list? Let us know and we can add it.
