Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Library

This is a guide to selected sources of information for CVE 497/498 and graduate students. To locate books on civil and environmental engineering, go to the URI Libraries Advanced Search, select "subject" from the drop down box, and use terms like civil engineering or environmental engineering. Similar searches in Reference Databases such as Compendex (Engineering Village 2), Agriculture & Environmental Science, or TRIS Online will locate articles.

One type of resource that you should look for is a handbook; they contain practical information such as specifications, regulations and legal restrictions, tolerances, equations, and properties of materials and thus are extremely useful. You can find handbooks simply by adding "handbook" in another search box in the URI Libraries Search.
