Welcome to the Engineering Research Guide. This guide is intended to help you find books, locate magazine and journal articles, search databases, and find quality websites.

The tabs across the top of the page will help you navigate between topics. Tabs with an arrow have sub-pages.

This resource is for you. Please make comments or suggestions or ask questions. You can email me directly or leave comments here.

Engineering Apps

Apps (little software applications) allow you to customize your tablet to do the things you like to do. Some of the apps listed are free, while others are fee-based. Additionally, some apps are initially free, and then require in-app purchases if more features and functionality are desired. Listed, you will find some app recommendations we have come up with through trial, error, and our own experiences.

ACC Library Services does not endorse any fee-based apps nor it is liable for reimbursement of any apps paid for by patrons. Please refer to the Tablet Circulation Policy for further details.
