These large comprehensive databases, (indexes) cover the areas of Engineering, Sciences and Medicine. Their size makes them the best place to search unless your area of study is highly specialised.
Note: Compendex, GeoBase, GeoRef, Inspec, EP patents, US patents, WO patents are accessed via the Engineering Village platform
Comprehensive Multidisciplinary Databases
These are smaller, specialist databases focusing on the area of Mechanical & Aerospace engineering.
The Library subscribes to a variety of journals that publish articles relating to the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering's research themes. If you’re looking for a journal, rather than a specific article, you can search the BrowZine Engineering and Technical section or ‘Library Search’ by title.
Background resources provide an overview of various Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering concepts, methods, processes, and theories, and may include books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks. These resources are an authoritative source of information, but are easier to read compared to research articles published in journals.
