Find journal articles

To help you find quality and scholarly journal articles on a subject we subscribe to databases. They can search many journals at the same time and by subject.

Databases for Engineering includes environmental, mechanical and electronic engineering.

Compendex (part of Engineering Village), IEEE and Emerald are all highly recommended for finding academic articles. The ASME digital collection is one of the premier resources for Mechanical Engineering journals and conference proceedings.

You can also use the library's Discover search, our single search system which searches our books, ebooks, most journal content and selected other resources.
