Mechanical Engineering: Library Resources

Additional Library Resources

The library carries a full set of ASTM standards (updated every 3 years), IEEE standards, the ANSI Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes, SAE - J series standards (in the "SAE Handbook"), most ACI standards (in the "ACI Manual of Concrete Practice"), and a smattering of ISO and other standards. Visit the Science & Engineering Library's Standards Page for more information and links to many standards issuing organizations.


Selected reference works located in the General Collection, Level 1
Besides scholarly literature, much information useful to engineers is in books, handbooks, & encyclopedias. A few of these very useful resources are listed below. This is *not* a complete list. The large majority of property data published over the last century is *not* available on the Internet, but is found in printed handbooks, looseleaf collections, and journals. Locating data takes perseverance and not every material or compound has published values for all possible properties. Consult one of the nearest reference help desk for assistance in locating property information. Nearly all of the selected reference works below have been published in the last 10-20 years.
An asterick (*) denotes a handbook searchable in the online database "EngNetBase".
