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.
These cost between £10 and £15 per Inter Library Loan, but members of the department can make 10 requests per academic year, free of charge.
If you want to request an item as an Inter Library Loan, please email us at email@example.com for a request form.
Online access to around 1800 construction-related Standards through the Construction Information Services.
Online access to ASTM Standards 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.
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.
Sometimes an e-book will show up on iDiscover with the phrase "Only available on designated PCs in the University Library and Affiliated Libraries". This means you will need to go to one of the libraries that offer this service to view the e-book on a specific PC. The Engineering Library has a designated PC in the Collaborative Space you can use. Other libraries with designated PCs include the University Library and the Betty and Gordon Moore Library. For more information please see the Electronic Legal Deposit LibGuide.
