Unlike some other disciplines, engineers use a wide variety of information formats. They might use handbooks or manuals, technical reports, and gray literature. Some of these sources may not appear in the library databases that are taught in general education courses. It can be beneficial to be aware of these other information sources and formats.
Combines Compendex (comprehensive bibliographic database of scientific and technical engineering research) and GEOBASE® (multidisciplinary database of literature on the earth sciences, geology, human and physical geography, environmental sciences, oceanography, geomechanics, alternative energy sources, pollution, waste management and nature conservation).
Maintains the world’s most comprehensive collection of U.S.-sponsored research. Houses more than 3 million publications, and data covers topics that range from aerodynamics to urban development. The archive spans the Manhattan project to present.
Science.gov searches over 60 databases and over 2,200 scientific websites to provide users with access to more than 200 million pages of authoritative federal science information including research and development results.
