Engineering Summer Programs: Overview


Welcome to the library!  These are some resources that will help you to locate and manage information for your project.

 We have broken the resources into collections of related material.  They are:

  • Background Information: Books and encyclopedias to give you a good idea of the general landscape of research in your area
  • Journal Articles: Tools for locating primary source materials, which report experimental procedures, results, and specifications
  • Managing References: Tools that will make it easy for you to create and format bibliographies
  • Evaluating Resources: Tips and links to further guidance on how to critically evaluate resources

Additional resources can be found on the Engineering Library Homepage.

Remember that we are here to help!  We've given you our contact information and the contact information of our libraries.  Please don't hesitate to use it!
