Online Handbooks and Reference Books

Most of our reference books are library-use-only, which means they can't be checked out. But that doesn't mean you can't get the information you need outside of the library. Here are some of the best online reference sources:

ASM Handbooks Online, featuring the complete content of twenty-four ASM Handbook volumes plus two ASM Desk Editions. Use this resource to find materials property data. If you are seeking properties for a specific alloy, an effective strategy is to start by doing a search for the name, or designation, of the alloy.

Offering over 500 of CRC Press' bestselling handbooks and references, ENGnetBASE continues to provide all fields of engineering with access to essential formulas, updated codes, and late-breaking developments that are shaping the field. Winner of the Best Reference Award from the American Society of Engineering Education.

Knovel is an online technical resource used to quickly locate relevant and reliable technical information. Knovel's interactive graphs and tables enable engineers to locate and extract the precise items of interest.

Remember to log in for off-campus access if you're using these outside of the library.
