SAE Technical Papers are the most commonly sought after information from the society. They also are the most difficult to find.
Finding Technical Papers
Step 1) Search for your paper on the SAE Mobilus website to get citation information like the paper number, conference name or journal title.
Step 2) If your paper is associated with a journal or conference, search for the journal title or conference title in Nimitz Search to see if we own it
Step 3) For papers 2007 and older check the SAE Transactions
Step 4) If you still can't find it - contact the engineering librarian for assistance or submit an interlibrary loan request and we'll try to get the paper for you.
