Engineering

Title
ANSI Standards

The Library licenses a specific selection of engineering standards, at the request of engineering faculty.

Some of them are on this platform, customized for the UPEI licenses, run by ANSI.org.

You can just read the standards directly, but if you "register" your own personal account on the site within the UPEI account, you will also be able to use a variety of useful features.

For more information or to request additional standards, contact the engineering librarian, Rosie Le Faive, rlefaive@upei.ca, 902-566-0533.

Compendex

Ei Compendex is the broadest and most complete engineering literature database available in the world with over 20 million indexed records from 77 countries across 190 engineering disciplines. Every record is carefully selected and indexed using the Engineering Index Thesaurus

CRCNetBase Handbooks

The library subscribes to the Engineering, Math, and Statistics collections of CRCNetBase (plus a few specific veterinary titles), a large collection of scientific handbooks. 

This site does NOT include the CRC Handbook of Chemistry & Physics, which the library subscribes to through another service.

INSPEC

Containing over 15 million records, Inspec is one of the most definitive abstract and indexing databases for subject specific and interdisciplinary research in the fields of engineering, physics and computer science. The Inspec database covers five main topics: physics; electrical engineering and electronics; computers and control; information technology for business; and mechanical and production engineering.

ASME Digital Collection

Journals and proceedings published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. 

  • ASME's Transaction Journals from 1960 to the present.
  • ASME's Conference Proceedings from 2002 to the present.
  • ASME Press eBooks selected from 1993 to the present.
IEEE IEL Online

Engineering journals, proceedings, and standards, from IEEE and IET

AccessEngineering

AccessEngineering is an online reference library, combining thousands of published reference sources along with videos, calculators, and interactive tables and charts. It is an excellent place to start research on a topic or access engineering handbooks. Many of the titles included in AccessEngineering can be found through the library catalogue.
