This is a guide to selected sources of information for MCE 401/402 and graduate students. To locate books on mechanical engineering, go to the library catalog, select "subject" from the drop down box, and use terms like applied engineering, mechanical engineering, or physical engineering. Similar searches in Reference Databases such as Compendex (Engineering Village 2) and Inspec will locate articles.
One type of resource that you should look for is a handbook; they contain practical information such as specifications, 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 library catalog.
