  • ProQuest Research Library
    For non-scholarly coverage of earth sciences topics, this interdisciplinary database also includes articles from trade journals, magazines, newspapers etc.


    The world's most comprehensive indexes to the engineering and computer science literature are available through Engineering Village:
  • Compendex
    The world's most comprehensive interdisciplinary engineering literature database. Coverage from 1884. Updated weekly.
  • Inspec
    Produced by the IET in the UK, Inspec covers physics, electrical engineering, electronics, computer science, control engineering and information technology. Records from 1896. Updated weekly.

    Other important literature databases:
  • NTIS (National Technical Information Service)
    Unclassified reports from influential U.S. and international government agencies.
  • SciFinder
