Engineering: Find Scholarly Literature
News and Important Links
As of December 1, 2015, EngNetBase, the CRC engineering handbooks database will no longer be available to UT students, faculty and staff. AccessEngineering, the McGraw-Hill engineering handbooks, will be available instead. The Libraries will order individual CRC titles on an as needed basis.
The UT Libraries website has changed. Here are some of the links.
Solving Off-Campus Access Problems
Occasionally there are temporary problems accessing databases off-campus. If it happens again, there are several options to solve this problem:
Locating Materials at UT and outside UT
What database should I use to find scholarly literature? (Knoxville and UTSI programs)
Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Civil and Environmental Engineering
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Industrial and Systems Engineering/Engineering Management
Materials Science Engineering
Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering
Databases Used by All Engineering Disciplines
Databases are generally located at UT Engineering and Technology Databases. Use databases to find peer-reviewed articles and other information.
Most databases require that you combine words in your search with AND or OR. AND retrieves records with all words. OR retrieves records with any of the words.
mercury pollution AND coal
mercury pollution OR mercury accumulation
nuclear AND computer* AND (reliability OR dependability)
The asterisk (*) truncates a word so that for this example, either computer or computers has to be in the records.
