Articles and eBooks datanases are useful for finding published research.  

Under reference databases you can find resoruces to aid in research or studying.


Articles and eBooks Databases

  • IEEE Xplore Digital Library  Covers topics includes: from computer engineering, biomedical technology and telecommunications, to electric power, aerospace and consumer electronics, among others.   See IEEE Search Tips for specific guidance on using this database.
  • FIREDOC  is an online bibliographic database that contains a large collection of building and fire research materials from many sources. The database reflects the 80,000 holdings (published reports, journal articles, conference proceedings, books, and audio/visual items) that have been collected by the Engineering Laboratory's Research Information Service.
  • Academic Search Complete (EBSCO) Academic Search Complete, designed specifically for academic institutions, is the world's most valuable and comprehensive scholarly, multi-disciplinary full-text database, with more than 5,300 full-text periodicals, including 4,400 peer-reviewed journals. In addition to full text, this database offers indexing and abstracts for more than 9,300 journals and a total of 10,900 publications including monographs, reports, conference proceedings, etc.
  • Environment Complete (EBSCO) offers deep coverage in applicable areas of agriculture, ecosystem ecology, energy, natural resources, marine & freshwater science, geography, pollution & waste management, environmental technology, environmental law, public policy, social impacts, urban planning, and more. The database contains citations for articles from domestic and international journals, monographs and conference papers of the North American Association of Environmental Education.
  • Access Science Searchable, electronic version of the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology with many features. You may search by word or phrase or browse by topic. It includes a science dictionary, news articles, research updates, biographies, information about data, tables and tools, a question and answer archive, links to web sites, and illustrations. The Student Center has study guides, additional reading materials, and topical essays.



Reference and Study Databases

  • NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions Presents the same technical information, in extended form as "Handbook of Mathematical Functions with Formulas, Graphs, and Mathematical Tables" edited by Milton Abramowitz and Irene A. Stegun. The DLMF may well serve as a model for the effective presentation of highly mathematical reference material on the Web.
  • NIST Chemistry WebBook provides users with easy access to chemical and physical property data for chemical species through the internet. The data provided in the site are from collections maintained by the NIST Standard Reference Data Program and outside contributors. Data in the WebBook system are organized by chemical species. The WebBook system allows users to search for chemical species by various means. Once the desired species has been identified, the system will display data for the species.
  • Wolfram|Alpha is an online service that answers factual queries directly by computing the answer from externally sourced curated data, rather than providing a list of documents or web pages that might contain the answer as a search engine.
  • Access Engineering  is an engineering reference tool for professionals, academics, and students that provides access to well known, current and authoritative,  engineering reference information.
