a selection of Databases available through the Library

Remember - these Databases are international in coverage; the Barr Smith Library does not pay for access to all of the articles and papers listed in the Databases.  If the link provided in the Database does not go to the full text, check      Library Search   under the title of the journal   If the text is not available, put in an   Inter Library Request   (top right of theL  LIBRARY SEARCH   page)

for all aspects of Engineering, try

for up-to-date, specialised information start with the two encyclocherubedias -

Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology.  5th ed.  2004-     editorial board is predominantly from North America
Ullmann's Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry.  6th ed. 2003-   editorial board is based in Europe

in addition the Databases -
CHERUB: CHemical Engineering Reference User Bibliography   specialised database of articles from English-language chemical engineering journals


 searches over 60 databases and over 2000 selected websites from 15 federal agencies, offering 200 million pages of authoritative U.S. government science information including research and development results.

useful databases - other disciplines

The specialised Databases can provide an in-depth coverage of a topic, while General Databases can be useful sources of social comment on technical issues and provide opinion on the impact of aspects of engineering on society.
