    • Library Hacks
    • Managing Citations
      http://www.lib.umn.edu/capim/citation/compare
    • Specific Types of Resources
    • Electrical & Computer Engineering Department
      Expected completion for analysis of Computer Science & Engineering Department: 10/15/11
      3 Masters theses, 43 PhD Dissertations
    • Sources Cited (ECE)
    • Other Sources (ECE)
    • What’s in the databases you’re searching?
      IEEE Xplore
      Mostly IEEE-published articles/papers
      Recent IET journals (2007-present)
      IBM Journal of Research & Development
      AIP (Applied Physics Letters, Journal of Applied Physics, and others)
    • What’s in the databases you’re searching?
      ACM
      Full text: ACM publications
      Citations: “Major publishers in computing”
      Load through the proxy and you’ll see the Find It button on citations
    • What’s in the databases you’re searching?
      Google Scholar
      We don’t know, but a lot
      Many publishers’ databases (Elsevier, IEEE, etc.)
      Institutional Repositories (University Digital Conservancy)
      Upside is breadth, downside is precision
    • What’s in the databases you’re searching?
      Engineering Village (Compendex/Inspec)
      General engineering, computer science, and physics
      Articles and conference papers, less gray literature than Google Scholar
      Allows for more precise search
    • What’s in the databases you’re searching?
      Web of Science
      Wide range of science disciplines
      Mostly published articles, not technical reports or conference papers
      Precise search, plus who’s-citing-whom analysis tools
    • Engineering Village
      Web of Science
    • Finding Standards
      Standards librarian: Jon Jeffryes
    • Standards
    • Standards
      Some cataloged, most not
      Check Jon’s page first, shelves at Walter second
      Call the reference desk and we’ll look for you
      If we don’t have it, ask Jon if he will order it for you
    • ISO Standards
      Database maintained by SciEng staff (http://www.lib.umn.edu/walter/iso/search)
