These collections contain abstracts and the full text of conference papers and journal articles. If you find a document in a database and you can't access the full text, email the engineering librarian or submit an interlibrary loan request.
Researchers report many new and novel procedures, process, products, and systems at conferences. Major society conferences, like ASME, are available through their respective digital libraries, but others can be difficult to find.

If you've attended a conference and no longer need the published proceedings, please consider donating it to the library. Contact the Engineering Librarian for details.
It can be very difficult for the library to locate and purchase copies of conference publications from smaller organizations and events after the meeting. We are especially interested in proceedings from conferences related to naval and ocean engineering.
