Databases of the week: the business of engineering

November 15, 2019

Engineers don’t just design things, they also need to build and sell them!  This week, Linnea Shieh from the Terman Engineering Library gives us a tour of databases that focus on markets and finance for entrepreneurial engineers and their companies.

Databases of the week - Accelerate your research by using xSearch, Funding Resources, and Chemical Safety search

One challenge that researchers face is where to look for information.   Google Scholar is popular but doesn’t include the wide array of resources licensed by the Stanford Libraries.  Google Scholar (GS) search results are also limited by the last time GS crawled a website.    Current students, faculty, and staff at Stanford are able to use three customized collections of databases to find needed information.  Developed by the Stanford Libraries and Deep Web Technologies, these databases are grouped by subject categories and multiple subject categories can be searched at one time.   Up to 100 citations are available from each database and the information is retrieved in real-time.

September 17, 2019
by Amy E. Hodge

Stanford's Science & Engineering Libraries announce a new Drop-in Research Consulting service designed to help science students with a wide variety of software, coding, and data issues. The focus will be on assisting grad students and other scientific researchers with questions related to research projects.

Visit us at the Branner Earth Sciences Library on Thursdays from 1-3pm in October and November, or consult with us remotely during these times via zoom at stanford.zoom.us/j/133673065.

Maker Cart

Maker Cart at Engineering Library

Are you working on a project that applies a variety of digital, electronic and hand tools such as 3D printing, Arduino microprocessors, soldering, assembling and others? We built a mobile cart with maker equipment and tools for you! This is now available for checkout at the engineering library. The cart comprises the following items (with additions in the coming weeks, based on need/requests):

A new way to use arXiv.org

October 4, 2019
by Ashley Jester

arXiv.org is a great resource for pre-prints in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Quantitative Biology, Quantitative Finance, Statistics, Electrical Engineering and Systems Science, and Economics.  While the PDF format of the pre-prints hosted there is great for offline reading or printing, it's not the best choice for online viewing, and now there is a great alternative in arXiv Vanity (https://www.arxiv-vanity.com/).

Our dedicated team of engineering librarians is excited to meet you in the coming weeks! We look forward to learning about your specific interests and how we can best support your research and education at Stanford. You can stop by and find us in the Terman Engineering Library, located on the second floor of the Huang Engineering Center, or email us at engreference@stanford.edu.

Stanford Libraries & The Carpentries

Stanford Libraries SERG/Carpentries Workshop Series

Stanford University is a member organization of The Carpentries, a nonprofit dedicated to teaching foundational skills for research computing skills. This partnership is managed by Dr. Amy Hodge of the Stanford University Libraries, and is open to the entire campus community. Over the past few quarters the Stanford University Libraries have offered the popular two-day Software Carpentry workshops as an open enrollment to anyone on campus. Other campus organizations have also run and will continue to run similar versions of these workshops.
