Key Resources

To search for books and e-books, start with Scholar OneSearch.

To search for articles, start with these databases:

  • ACM Digital Library - contains full-text access to most Association for Computing Machinery periodicals and conference proceedings from 1985 to the present.
  • Engineering Village (Includes Compendex and Inspec) - a comprehensive interdisciplinary engineering database. Contains over 43 million records, including journals, conferences and trade publications
  • Knovel - primarily e-books, especially handbooks and scientific and engineering reference manuals and data. For certain properties there are specific chemical equations and digital graphs. Analyze data, sort, filter, and export from 'live tables', resolve equations and plot graphs, capture values from existing graphs and perform 'What If' experiments.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers is the world's largest association for the advancement of technology. The IEEE/IEL Electronic Library/Xplore gives access to the world's highest quality technical literature in engineering and technology, and includes select content published since 1950 from IEEE journals, transactions, magazines, conference proceedings, and standards, including Spectrum Magazine and Proceedings of the IEEE.

  • Web of Science  - indexes over 11,000 scholarly journals in the sciences (1975-present). Web of Science's strength is in its interdisciplinary focus and its ability to perform citation searching.

Anti-Racism in Engineering

This list of resources and organizations is intended to support the College of Engineering's work to support diversity, inclusion, equity and justice in our communities and practices. The list is not comprehensive, and the resources inevitably reflect the biases of the various creators. They are intended to provide a starting point to explore the wide variety of resources within the Engineering and STEM communities. This page will be continuously updated and feedback is welcome! If you're looking for more resources or for something different, please reach out to Jodi Bolognese at

For more anti-racism resources in Engineering, please check out the full Diversity and Anti-racism in Engineering page

For more anti-racism resources in STEM, please check out our Diversity and Anti-Racism in STEM page.
