List of bibliographic databases including mechanical Engineering

If you are a student in mechanical engineering and related subjects you should be familiar with and use the following information sources in the field of technology. Here they are grouped by type.

Databases

COMPENDEX: Database with references from the worlds leading publications in engineering and technology.

ISI: Offers search facilities in three citation databases: Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Sciences Citation Index and Arts & Humanities Citation Index.

IEEE Xplore IEEE Xplore provides full-text access to Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and Institution of Electrical Engineers transactions, journals, magazines and conference proceedings…

Apart from these big commercial databases, there are also some free resources that can be recommended:
MatWeb, The Online Materials Information Resource (Information about different materials); PSI, Polymer Search on the Internet (About Polymer material)

Energy Citations Database:  Contains bibliographic records for energy and energy-related scientific and technical information from the US Department of Energy (DOE) and its predecessor agencies, the Energy Research & Development Administration…

Patent

It is important to know about patents in all product development. Patents protect technical solutions and inventions

Patent- och Registreiringsverkets At the Swedish Patent and Registration Office web site you will find, among other things, “Svensk Patenttidning” where all Swedish patent applications and patents are announced.

Good, free access resources in patents are:

Esp@cenet, Europe’s Network of patent databases. In the database there are more than 30 million national and international patents searchable since 1980.

Patent and Trademark Office (US Patents)Database from the United States Patent and Trademark Office includes patents from 1790. Patents from 1790 through 1975 are searchable only by Patent Number and Current US Classification…

Patent Web Resources Patent web resource page. Includes a link to the United States Patent and Trademark Office web site, Free Sites for Searching Patents, Free Sites for Printing Patents, Subject Specific Patent Databases…

Standards

For engineers it is also important to know something about standards and to know how to search for standards. Much of what you need to know is available in the document Information about Standards. Here you will find basic information about the use of standards, plus methods for seeking standard documents.

Swedish Standards Institute

Standard E-NAV: E-nav is an online library of more than 70,000 searchable standards.

Product- and company registers

Product- and company registers can often be useful for technicians. One such register is the Swedish Kompass where you can find facts about Swedish companies and their products.

Svenska Kompass
