Lib Guides

Often, the most formidable thing about starting a project is knowing where to start.  The Brown Science and Engineering Library wants to make your research journeys as straight-forward and efficient as possible.  To that end we’ve constructed a series of Lib Guides for most of the subject disciplines taught at UVa.  Use these guides to help you discover good starting places for researching information on a topic and to learn about less familiar information resources you may not be aware of or have thought of using before.  And if you know of a resource you think would be good to include on one of our Lib Guides, let us know!

In the Beginning…

…there was Engineering Index, the “granddaddy” of all engineering literature indexes.  Nowadays, we know it in online form as Compendex or Engineering Village.  But whatever you call it, it is the one place you should always check when doing serious research on any engineering topic.  As time (and this blog) goes by, I’ll have more to say about Compendex, but for now just remember to check Compendex whenever you’re searching for information on an engineering topic!
