This guide is for engineering graduate students beginning to write their master's theses or doctoral dissertations. You will find information about searching the engineering literature for papers on your research topic, locating journals that publish work in your research area, and locating books and other technical resources.
Visit the different pages of this guide using the tabs on the left to delve into these areas in depth.
The most commonly used library database for mechanical engineering is the ASME Digital Library.
The library does not subscribe to every journal published. When looking at a results list within a database, look for a Get it! button with Rowan University branding to find sources of full text.
