Conference proceedings are not always published. For more help finding conference proceedings click on the title above.
Engineering Journals and Periodicals
The Engineering Library subscribes to hundreds of journals both in print/hard copy and online. To find out if we have a particular journal, search for the title in the UW Libraries Catalog. Click above for help finding journals and more information about getting an article from a journal we don't subscribe to.
Engineering Standards
The standards in the Engineering Library's collection are primarily engineering related. For standards related to other subjects, you might try checking with other libraries such as the Health Sciences or Built Environments Libraries.
Engineering, Scientific & Technical Databases
The Engineering Library created this list of databases for research in all fields of engineering and technology. You will find references to articles, articles in full-text, technical reports, conference papers and other resources by searching a database from this list.
