Adding further to our growing engineering e-book portfolio, the Library recently purchased the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET)’s ‘Ultimate Collection.’ This gives our staff and students access to over 350 ebooks published by the IET between 1979 and 2012. You can find these new titles on the Library catalogue, with PDF content available to download in a couple of clicks. It’s also possible to search or browse the collection by topic, author, title on the IET Digital Library, (It’s worth knowing that our access to the IET’s journals and conference papers is not on the IET platform, but via IEEE Xplore.)
Content includes professional, technical and research monographs on a wide range of engineering and technology topics, from Power and Energy, to Telecommunications, to Management of Technology. IET’s recent acquisition of SciTech Publishing, a specialist imprint in the field of radar and electromagnetics, has boosted coverage further.
The Engineering librarians David Stacey and Hilary Cooksley would welcome your feedback on this new resource.
