If you're looking for Engineering resources other than the online databases listed below, please consult the full guide: Engineering Science Information Resources.

Top Resources

  1. Publications from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET, formerly the IEE.) Document types include books, journals, conference proceedings, and standards. Topic areas include electrical and computer engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering, physics, and materials science.
  2. Covers a range of journals on applied science and technology topics such as engineering, computer science, robotics, geology and metallurgy, materials, transportation, etc.
  3. Includes journal articles, ebooks, and conference proceedings from the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE). Covers the field of optics, photonics, medical imaging, remote sensing, and optical engineering.
  4. Indexes core journal articles, conference proceedings, and other resources in the sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities, can be used for citation analysis of research. A citation index contains the references cited by the authors of the publications covered by the index. You can use these references to do a cited reference search. This type of search enables you to find works that cite a previously published work.
  5. Online access to a custom collection of standards from the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Wide ranging topics, including standards for electricity, medical electrical equipment, power systems, and risk management. To view and read documents, users will need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader and FileOpen installed.

Other Resources

  1. Worldwide coverage of all aspects of computers and computing literature in English.
    2018-06-11. Access to the guide is consolidated within the ACM Digital Library. This link will be discontinued on August 1, 2018.
  2. The Audio Engineering Society (AES) E-Library includes convention and conference papers, JAES journal articles, and engineering briefs on the subject of audio technology. Coverage: 1953-present.
  3. Seven decades of citations to articles on events, issues and trends in the history of business and industry. Includes the complete file of the Industrial Arts Index (1913-1957) covering topics such as aviation, commercial air travel, urban mass transit and the Atomic Age.
  4. E-books, handbooks, reviews, and research volumes in biology, bioinformatics, and biotechnology.
  5. Access to Standards across an array of industries, as set by the Canadian General Standards Board. These standards are provided to Simon Fraser University for educational and research purposes.
  6. A digital library and search engine that focuses on the literature in computer and information science. Provides additional resources such as algorithms, data, metadata, services, techniques, and software that can be used to promote other digital libraries.
  7. E-books cover topics related to biomedical and life sciences.
  8. An index to papers published in conference proceedings with citation information for the sciences.
  9. Access to IEEE Wiley and MIT Press E-books on the IEEE Xplore platform.
  10. Searchable collections of physics ebooks from IOPscience.
  11. Online proceedings from Materials Research Society Symposia. Contains work across the broad field of materials research, including: Biomaterials, Biomimetics, Nanomaterials, Quantum matter, Plasmonics, Nanophotonics, and more. Coverage: Volume 1 (1980) to Volume 1810 (2015).
  12. Provides access to aerospace-related citations, full-text online documents, images, and videos. Includes conference papers, journal articles, meeting papers, patents, research reports, images, movies, and technical videos. All created or funded by NASA. Full text documents are free but must be requested through the NASA STI Order Form.
  13. Worlds most comprehensive collection of dissertations and theses from around the world. Historic and ongoing coverage.
  14. Leased, rotating collection of technology, digital media, and business books; educational videos included as well. Both trade (eg, O'Reilly) and academic publishers (CRC, Wiley) in collection. Requires separate login.

  16. Access to e-books from SPIE.
  17. A medium for the publication of new developments in computer science and information technology research and teaching. Includes subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI). Materials indexed: Conference proceedings, edited multiauthor volumes, monographs, Festschrifts, and some theses,
  18. Reports new developments in the fields of control and information sciences. Includes preliminary drafts of monographs and advanced textbooks, lectures, research reports, and conference papers.
  19. Ebooks, journals, conference papers, and reference works published by Springer. Covers a wide range of disciplines, with an emphasis on the sciences.
  20. 50- to 100-page electronic books that synthesize an important research or development topic, authored by a prominent contributor to the field. These "lectures" provide more synthesis, analysis, and depth than typical research journal articles. Ideal entry points to new areas for researchers, advanced developers, and students.
