1. Use th OneSearch to find books and reference materials. See the Books tab of this guide for hints.
3. Use Databases to find journal articles on your topic. Use the databases listed on the Articles tab of this guide.
4. Register for Document Delivery, a free service for obtaining articles from journals not available in the CPP Library.
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.
