The field of engineering is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary, and there is an ever-growing need for engineers to investigate engineering and scientific resources outside their own area of expertise. However, studies have shown that quality information-finding skills often tend to be lacking in the engineering profession. Using the Engineering Literature is a guide to the wide range of resources in all fields of engineering. The information age has greatly impacted the way engineers find information. While print is still important, resources are increasingly being made available in electronic formats, and the Web is now a major resource. Engineers have an effect, whether direct or not, on almost all aspects of our lives, and it is vital that they find the right information at the right time to create better products and processes. The book takes an engineering sub-discipline approach, detailing those resources that are most important for the practicing engineer and the librarians who work in engineering. Each chapter provides a short history and description of the discipline, then lists the most important resources by format: handbooks, dictionaries, texts, journals, websites, etc. Most references include a short annotation. The authors of each chapter are well-known, experienced librarians or faculty in the appropriate engineering discipline, sharing their expertise and experiences with engineering information. This is a guide to resources that are often unknown to the practicing engineer. It also serves as a textbook for the library school student or new engineering librarian, as well as a time-saving handbook for current librarians. The arrangement of materials provides easy and logical access to evaluated resources in engineering and supporting disciplines, providing a tool that is useful in reference services and collection development.

Abstracts are useful in at least nine ways: 1. Papers in science and technology are published in more than 50 languages. Most users of technical publications can read only a few languages, and abstracts in one language help them to select documents for translation. The user needs, at most, two languages; at best, he needs only one language. 2. The technical literature is too large for an individual to acquire or scan. There are estimated to be 35,000 or more technical periodicals. More than 200,000 papers are published per year, with some overlap, in each of the fields of chemistry, biology, and biomedicine. Abstracts facilitate the selection of papers to be read. 3. Informative abstracts substitute for the original literature in many cases. 4. The reading or scanning of abstracts for selection of data or for deciding to read the original articles saves time over that required for selection from original documents. 5. Abstracts are more convenient to arrange into related groups than is the original literature. Adjacent technical papers bound in journals may often be unrelated. The same abstract can be placed in several categories less expensively than can originals. Many articles and reports fall into several classes of useful classification systems. Classified abstracts in a published journal bring together guides into a large field of knowledge—one several to many times larger than the user can read. 6. Retrospective searches are greatly aided by classified, indexed abstracts. Searching through reports or journals for any large field of knowledge is now impractical. 7. By the use of abstracts, accuracy of selection of literature to be read or translated is increased over that of selection from titles or titles plus annotations. The additional information in the abstract increases the accuracy. 8. Abstracts facilitate indexing in two ways: 1) The abstract concentrates the indexable subjects so that indexing proceeds at two to four times the rate required for original documents. 2) Elimination of the language problem enables assignment of abstracts for indexing by subject only. This specialization improves both the quality and the rate of indexing, because the subject specialist is not also required to read another language. 9. The preparation of articles, bibliographies, reviews, and talks requires organization of the material used; so do acquisition and searching. Abstracts can be used to facilitate this organization. For this purpose they can be copied, cut, and pasted. Organized abstracts also facilitate the indexing of bibliographies and reviews.
