Finding Books and Encyclopedias

Nimitz Search is your first stop for books and encyclopedias with information on your alloy. Combine your alloy's name with terms like structure, properties or handbook. Once you've found a book that fits your topic, browse the shelves nearby for additional materials.

Knovel contains ebooks and data tables with material property data. It's a useful database for your assignment.

Most of the books included here are in the First Floor Reference section. Search in the same call number areas on the Third Deck for similar resources.
