New enhancements have been added to the Library’s subscription to AccessEngineering!
AccessEngineering, which provides access to more than 250 McGraw-Hill e-books on a wide range of engineering topics, now includes several new features:
- Videos - Instructional videos from top engineering faculty that provide step-by-step solutions and reinforce key engineering concepts. See a sample video on calculating the time to drop a drop of water, given air temperature and relative humidity as a function of drop size.
- Interactive graphs and tools - Perry's Handbook for Chemical Engineers and Marks' Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers now feature interactive tools that allow users to find, extract, and analyze complex data found in tables and graphs.
- Curriculum Maps - Ready-to-use curriculum maps are available from the homepage of AccessEngineering on the topics of engineering economics, fluid flow / momentum transfer, heat transfer, machine design, mass transfer, reaction kinetics, strength of materials, thermodynamics, and vibration and control.
- Global Engineering News – Real-time global engineering news on the latest technical advances in core engineering areas.
AccessEngineering is available from the Library’s Research Databases page. To learn more about AccessEngineering, see the article in January’s news @ your library.
