Engineering Village

Subjects covered include engineering geology, environmental science, nanotechnology, geophysics, petroleum engineering and physics. This is the biggest and broadest engineering and computing database in the world. Search for journal articles, technical reports and conference proceedings. Includes the research databases Compendex and Inspec and the book collection Referex. It is better to de-select Referex if you are looking specifically for articles, as it improves the search. Coverage starts from 1884.
