Introducing IEEE Standards in Compendex on Engineering Village

on Mon, 01/22/2018 - 15:27

Oil rigs. Batteries. Airplanes. These modern marvels all require the use of technical standards, a cornerstone of engineering. But, standards aren’t the only “cornerstones” of engineering research, design & development, and manufacturing. While standards will tell you “what” to adhere to, “how to get there” is a different story.

Engineers and researchers need a complete suite of validated information to innovate, build, and maintain. That information is usually found in books, journals, conference proceeding, and more…all of which is indexed in Compendex on Engineering Village.

Now, Compendex on Engineering Village just became a more comprehensive place to discover technical guidelines on top of how to apply them.

Compendex on Engineering Village now indexes standards from IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), one of the most prominent standards development organizations in the world. As one of the world's leading standards developers, IEEE is also a leading source of information and resources on standards, their applications, and their impact on designing new products, processes, and services. All of this is discoverable in context of validated information that engineers and researchers need in Compendex on Engineering Village.

There are multiple ways to discover standards, depending on your need.

Remember to always select “Compendex” on the databases tab before running a search.

One way to find standards is to use the Thesaurus Search, which uses a controlled vocabulary to standardize search terms, to narrow down your results. If you were to type in “wearable technology”, then choose “flexible electronics” using the suggested terms, and filter for document type “standard”, your results are tailored to your very specific need.

 

 

You can also use the Quick Search option to search a specific term and then filter by document type “Standard”.
