As the CEIE Department librarian, I work with students and faculty in planning research and locating information resources. I select books, journals, etc. in CEIE and instruct classes.  Need help? Call or  e-mail me. I look forward to working with you!

New Resources

The following online resources are now available through the Mason Libraries.  You can access these remotely by logging in when prompted with your Mason NetID.

  • AccessEngineering
    AccessEngineering is comprehensive collection of multidisciplinary engineering handbooks which allows users to search and use interactive tools to locate targeted content and data.
  • Engineering Case Studies Online
    Comprehensive source for a wide range of video and text material focusing on engineering failures and successes. Iincludes documentaries, accident reports, experiments, visualizations, case studies, lectures and interviews from leading engineering institutions around the world.

Core Databases for CEIE

Highly recommended databases from the Libraries' Database Portal for CEIE are:

  • ASCE Digital Library - Civil Engineering Database
    Full-text access to ASCE journals (back to 1983) and to ASCE conference proceedings.
  • Civil Engineering Abstracts
    Covers structural design, construction engineering, environmental, seismic engineering, forensics and more. Includes content from ASCE and ICE (UK).
  • Compendex
    Searched Compendex for global technical literature in all engineering disciplines.
  • Engineering Research Database
    Search multiple databases at the same time: Abstracts in New Technologies and Engineering, ASCE Civil Engineering Abstracts, Environmental Engineering Abstracts, Earthquake Engineering Abstracts, Mechanical & Transportation Engineering Abstracts
  • Environment Complete
    Covers pollution & waste management, environmental technology, environmental law, public policy, etc. Full-text for over 600 journals.
  • ProQuest Deep Indexing: Engineering
    Lets users search figures, tables, graphs, maps, charts and other illustrations from scholarly journals.
  • ProQuest Environmental Science Collection
    Covers environmental sciences and pollution. Includes all records from Environemental Sciences and Pollution Management. Also allows users to search figures and tables within articles and environmental impact statements.
  • Science Citation Index (also called Web of Science)
    Use this resource to find citations and abstracts to research in engineering and to track citations of papers (i.e. who has cited whom AND who was cited by whom).
  • TRID (formerly TRIS)
    Search for transportation research in books, journals and technical reports. TRID combines the records from TRB's TRIS Database with the OECD's Joint Transport Research Centre’s International Transport Research Documentation (ITRD) Database.

Finding Dissertations

Use the following databases to find citations and/or full-text dissertations. Make borrowing requests through ILL if needed.
