Databases

Useful databases for Engineering subjects include IEEE Xplore, to find journal articles, e-books, standards and conference proceedings published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE) and its publishing partners; as well as Scopus, and Web of Science, two very comprehensive online databases covering all subjects. Use our short video guides to learn how to search them effectively.
