Ocean Engineering and the Library

This is a guide to selected sources of information about ocean engineering at URI. To locate books on ocean engineering, go to the library catalog, select "subject" from the drop down box, and use terms like coastal engineering or ocean engineering. Similar searches in Reference Databases such as Compendex and Oceanic Abstracts 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 library catalog.
