Online Resources for Engineering
These databases have journal articles, conference papers, physical data, and other information.
To see a description of every database in the list below, click the button next to its name. Note: The list of databases and tools for Computer Science and Security is slightly different from the Engineering list.
- Start your searches with Compendex, the biggest engineering database, which covers all areas.
- Along with Compendex, there are three other databases that you can search separately or together: Inspec , NTIS, and GeoBase
- If you search 2 or more of these databases TOGETHER, you can then remove duplicates.
---- However, removing duplicates must be your very last step, so finishing refining your search (such as changing the date range, adding words to the search, putting some words in the TITLE, etc.) first.
OSTI (Office of Scientific and Technical Information) provides access to the huge collection of DoE's publications.
- Their Science Conference Proceedings portal searches 26 national labs and professional societies for citations to conference papers.
- There is some overlap with other databases, but proceedings can be tough to find so this is another source.
