Go to the Tools page to learn about useful library tools.
The library does not subscribe to every journal published. If you don't see a Full Text link below the article citation, look for a button labeled "Get it!" This application will check for access to the full text of the article within the library's subscriptions.
If a message is displayed indicating that we don't have access, choose the Campbell Library Interlibrary Loan Request link to order the article through our Illiad online system.
If you are looking for a specific journal in your field and want to determine if the library subscribes to it, use our E-Journal Finder.
Enter the name of the journal in the search box. If the library has a subscription, the results list will show which library databases offer access to the journal and for what years.
If you have a complete citation (author, article title, journal, volume, issue, date), you can use our Citation Linker form to link directly to the article.
The proceedings of the American Society for Engineering Education are available (free) on this website.
The easiest way to find a book that the library owns: search by title in ProfSearch. If your book is not the first result, refine your search to Books/E-Books in the Content Type facet in the left sidebar. Please note that the library does not have copies of most textbooks.
Many books are now available in e-book format and can be viewed on your computer, tablet, or phone.
For print books, ProfSearch will first indicate their availability, usually followed by a Call Number which identifies the book's shelf location. If the availability is followed by a date (yyyy-mm-dd), it is checked out and is due to be returned on that date.
To locate print books on the shelf, first identify the floor and row using the initial alphabetical code, then the specific book using the rest of the call number (for example, TK5678 .G99 2008 is in the Electrical Engineering section on the 4th floor).
Books available for borrowing by students and faculty are available on the 4th floor of Campbell Library. General books on mechanical engineering are in the TJ section. Automotive and aeronautical engineering is found in the TL section, and manufacturing engineering in the TS section.
To search for mechanical engineering books in the Library Catalog, try the following Library of Congress Subject Headings: Automobile industry and trade, Aviation & aerospace, CAD/CAM Systems, Combustion, Fuel - Research, Industrial engineering, Machinery, Manufacturing processes, Materials, Mechanical engineering.
Mechanical engineering reference books are located in the TJ section in the 2nd floor Reference Room of Campbell Library, behind the Reference Desk.
McGraw-Hill engineering handbooks and content study guides are now available through Access Engineering.
The ASTM Standards and Engineering Digital Library provides access to the Annual Book of Standards in online subscription format.
This website lets you search for standards by topic, across providers. Results come from ISO, ANSI, IEEE, ASTM, and other standards organizations.
RefWorks is an application licensed by Rowan University Libraries to help you manage your literature search process. Create an account to log in.
Books which Rowan University does not own can be borrowed from one of the participating academic libraries in New Jersey and Pennsylvania using E-ZBorrow. Use your 9-digit Banner number for Patron Id.
Journal articles to which we do not have full text access may be requested through our online Interlibrary Loan request system, Illiad. Articles are usually sent to your email address within a few days.
Here are some books available in the library to help you with writing.
