  • Welcome to this session. I’m based at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, where I’m Senior Subject Librarian, and I manage a service called TechXtra, which I’ll mention briefly later, and I also edit the Internet Resources Newsletter which I hope some of you may have heard of. Today I’m giving an Update on Engineering Information Resources over the past year.
