EEE Handy Resource Guide

  1. 1. JRUL: Handy Guide Electrical & Electronic Engineering: information sources IntroductionThis handy guide provides you with information on the available resources for Electrical& Electronic Engineering students at the John Rylands University Library (JRUL).You can also access detailed subject guides from the Library webpages. Recommend reading – Link2ListsYou can find all the recommended books, e-books, journals, websites etc by accessingLink2Lists. Just search by your course code or a keyword to bring up the recommendedreading for your course. BooksYou can use the Library Catalogue (TalisPrism) to locate books and e-books. Thecatalogue can be searched by author, title or keyword and you can narrow the searchby:  Specifying a catalogue e.g. John Rylands, Copac (British Library), Library of Congress  Selecting the Library Site you want to search from e.g. Main Library, Joule Library, Precinct Library etc.  Choosing a Year.The Librarys stock Electrical & Electronic Engineering Engineering books and journals isfound in the Joule Library, Sackville St Building.
