UC Libraries now has a subscription to ASTM Compass, which includes all ASTM standards, journals and STPs (Special Technical Publications). Access to standards includes both current and historical versions.
The week of April 14-20, 2013, the College of Engineering and Applied Science Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers.
Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. As the heart of the campus, community, or school, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their users live, work and study.
Librarians work with students, faculty, small business owners, the public and many others to discover what their communities needs are and meet them. Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, materials for English-language learners, programs for job seekers or those to support early literacy, librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.
The CEAS Library serves the UC College of Engineering and Applied Science by providing an extensive research collection of 180,000+ Books, 70,000+ E-Books, 35,000+ E-Journals, as well as Expert Reference assistance, Study Spaces, a beautiful Reading Room and Art Collection, and an Info Commons computing space.
The CEAS Library is celebrating National Library Week with a special display on the History of the Library as well as items authored by Alumni and Faculty of the College.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.

Through a shared subscription of the College of Engineering and Applied Science Library and Health Sciences Library, UC researchers now have have access to the online Journal of Visualized Experiments (JOVE). JOVE consists of “video articles” that capture biological, medical, chemical, and physical research and experimental techniques.
The e-book collection of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is now available. This collection is part of the IET Digital Library and contains more than 300 e-books dated 1979 through 2011. These e-books are also discoverable through the UC Library catalog (series IET Digital Library) and the Summon search system.
Content covers twelve major areas:
Circuits, Devices and Systems
History of Technology
Management of Technology
Power and Energy
Professional Applications of Computing
Radar, Sonar, Navigation and Avionics
These e-books are downloadable in PDF format as either individual chapters or the entire book.
UC Libraries recently purchased the eBooks collection on the SPIE Digital Library platform. Find these at http://spiedl.org/ebooks (UC Central Login required to view off-campus). For now, please utilize the SPIE link for direct access. Access via the UC Library catalog and the Summon search system is forthcoming.
SPIE is one of the world’s foremost non-profit societies in the field of light research. The eBook collection includes more than 150 titles from SPIE Press. Dating from 1989 to 2012, these titles include field guides, reference books, and tutorial texts in the field of optics and photonics.
Subject coverage for SPIE eBooks and the broader SPIE Digital Library includes:
How do you access the CEAS Library (8th floor, Baldwin Hall) from the Rhodes lobby? Take the elevator up to the 7th floor of Rhodes, make a sharp right turn as you exit the elevator, then proceed down the hallway toward Baldwin Hall (in the direction of Clifton Avenue). Use the stairs or elevator nearest to Baldwin Hall to reach the 8th floor.
To avoid steps, enter the adjacent Engineering Research Center (ERC) building and take its elevator to the 6th or 7th floor. Cross the bridge into Rhodes Hall and proceed down the hallway toward Baldwin Hall as described above (you will pass by the Rhodes lobby elevator). Use the stairs or elevator nearest to Baldwin Hall to reach the 8th floor.
There is no change in direct access to the CEAS Library from either Baldwin Hall or Zimmer Hall.
