Engineering Library Newsletter: October / November 2019

This library newsletter for faculty and students keeps you informed of our activities, services and resources.

Whats's New?

JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments) is the world's first peer reviewed scientific video journal. Established in 2006, JoVE is devoted to publishing scientific research in a visual format to help researchers overcome two of the biggest challenges facing the scientific research community today; poor reproducibility and the time and labor intensive nature of learning new experimental techniques.  Reduces lab training time for students by up to 75% It encompasses a range of experimental and instrumental techniques utilized in physics research and applied physics. Investigations in this area try to address and answer a broad range of scientific questions, such as device mechanisms and efficiencies, using physical tools. This approach often requires a combination of specialties, and research in this area tends to be interdisciplinary with contributions from mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineers.

What's OLD in the Library?

We always report on "Whats New" but let's not forget the Engineering Library houses a valuable collection of Old Books. These books are located in the Engineering library Store section and are still popular with our users.
