This guide will help you find information you need for your projects and provides pointers for getting started with your research. Use the tabs above to find the type of information you need. Please don't hesitate to contact the Engineering Librarian if you have any questions. My contact information is in the box on the left side of the page.
Any time you need chemical engineering information or are starting research on a chemical engineering topic, check the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology. It has extensive articles on just about everything related to chemical engineering. If you need quick look up information (facts, figures, data, formulas) or a brief overview of a chemical engineering topic, look in Perry's Chemical Engineer's Handook.
A comprehensive handbook covering all aspects of chemical engineering. Includes formulas, extensive tables, diagrams, and charts, properties, equipment and processes. This handbook goes by the nickname "Perry's". The title link goes to the electronic edition. Print copies are available in Reference and Reserve.
This book offers new engineers and engineering students appropriate and effective strategies to find data, statistics, and research to support decision making. A useful guide for information sources in chemical engineering.
We also have a guide for Materials Engineering. It includes more information for finding materials data and properties as well as addtional resources for materials engineering research.
OneSearch is the Library's all purpose search interface. OneSearch brings in search results (books, articles, more) from the Library Catalog and most of our databases. OneSearch is still under development and has some quirks. Take a look at our OneSearch FAQ to learn more.
IMPORTANT! OneSearch does not actually search everything. OneSearch does NOT search Compendex, our primary engineering database, and it does not search the full text of other important engineering resources such as IEEE Xplore or Knovel.
Go ahead and try OneSearch, but for most of your engineering research you will have better results if you use one of the databases recommended for your major. Look for the Databases link in the Featured Links area of the Library homepage.
