Collection Spotlight: Engineering Village and Techstreet
by Juan Denzer, Engineering and Computer Science librarian
Engineering Village is a platform that offers access to 14 databases covering a wide range of STEM subjects. Such databases include Ei Compendex, Inspec – IET, GEOBASE, Ei Patents, and Knovel. These are essential database resources for engineering research as they facilitate search and discovery of the most comprehensive and highest quality engineering literature and research information.
Engineering Village features several abstract and indexing (A&I) databases, which curate and index research abstracts, facilitating search and discovery, and link to the full-text articles. This makes it easier for researchers and saves time. Covered Engineering fields and other STEM areas include journal articles, conference proceedings, patents, and dissertations from 1898 to present.
Engineering Village includes access to Compendex which now offers over 800,000 open access preprints from arXiv (from 2017 onwards). Access to preprints is a great way for researchers to discover upcoming research that will not only help them know what new research is on the horizon but can help with collaboration opportunities.
TechStreet is the preferred purchase platform for standards and technical books in many libraries offering over 550,000 standards and codes. This resource allows the University library to offer access to standards that fall outside our current subscriptions to IEEE, ASTM, and SAE. Techstreet offers an Online View option that allows users to easily view a document without having to download the PDF or install any browser plugins. Syracuse University Libraries can purchase standards for courses, your research, and your design projects. Contact the Engineering and Computer Science Librarian.
"I love the flexibility that we can add standards for a class one year, and then swap them out..." - Erin Rowley, Techstreet Super User and librarian
