Classes and Online Tutorials The Physical Sciences and Engineering Libraries offer hands-on workshops. For workshop descriptions and to register, visit the workshop manager.
Research Guides Research Guides provide useful information about using online and print resources for research.
Current Awareness The Engineering Library can assist you in setting up a search profile for continuous updates from databases such as Compendex, INSPEC, PubMed, and ISI Science Citation Index. The database will automatically email you citations for new content that matches the saved search criteria.
Users can also monitor specific journals by setting up Table of Contents (TOC) alerts. These are frequently available directly from the publisher. PennAlerts is a Penn Library service that enables you to receive TOC alerts from most Penn-subscribed electronic journals. (N.B. You will need to login with your PennKey to access PennAlerts.)
Contact Doug McGee to help establish your alerts.
Contact Your Online Research Advisor The Library Advising in Residence Project provides in residence assistance to all students living in the College Houses.
