Welcome to the Library.

I'm Kathryn Briggs, your subject Librarian for Engineering, if you need any help just ask in the Library or email us.


This is an introductory guide to help you find key, academic resources while studying engineering and show you how to make use of them. Hopefully, it will answer most of the questions that you have about the library resources.

The School of Engineering has three departments:

  1. Department of Building and Civil Engineering
  2. Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering
  3. Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

 

The guide provides key information on engineering sources including:

  • Finding items in print and online; including books, journals & newspapers

  • Searching databases

  • Useful websites

  • Citation & referencing

  • Support & training
