Mechanical Engineering

This guide is designed as a starting point for doing engineering research using Preston Library's resources.

Why use magazine, newspaper or scholarly journal articles?

Articles provide information on very specific, narrow topics. The Library purchases article databases so you may access articles for your topic – for free. Researchers use them when they need:

  • Magazines and Newspapers: Brief coverage of contemporary events written to all levels of readers.
  • Peer Reviewed/Scholarly Journals: Reports of research or scholarship on specific topics written by scholars to other scholars

Journals & Magazines

The Applied Mechanics Reviews is the international review journal that serves as a premier venue for dissemination of material across all sub-disciplines of applied mechanics and engineering science, including fluid and solid mechanics, heat transfer, dynamics and vibration, and applications.

Engineering News-Record (ENR) provides the news, analysis, commentary and data that construction industry professionals need to do their jobs more effectively.   ENR connects diverse sectors of the industry with coverage that everyone needs about issues such as business management, design, construction methods, technology, safety, law, legislation, environment and labor.

Current issues are located in the Periodical Reading Room.
