Research Guides

Engineering: Books/eBooks

Welcome! This library research guide provides quick access to selected print and electronic engineering and technology information sources available to SUU students, faculty, and staff.

Browse the shelves (Engineering)

Sometimes wandering the shelves is useful. If you can find one book on a topic, others like it will be sitting close by on the same shelf.  Be sure to look at both the Reference collection on the first floor for general helps like encyclopedias, and at the circulating collection on the second floor for books you can take with you

WorldCat: Find Books in Other Libraries

You can discover books (and other materials) not available in the SUU library by using the database, which lists the holdings of hundreds of library catalogs. Enter relevant terms or names in the box below.

Search for an item in libraries near you: >>

SUU researchers can request most items found in WorldCat via Interlibrary Loan (see below).


Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan enables current SUU students, faculty, and staff to request books or receive electronic copies of articles that are available from other libraries.

To use Interlibrary Loan, from the library homepage, choose the Research button, then Interlibrary Loan.

  • If you've searched the Library Catalog and discover the SUU library doesn't have the book you need. Book requests will be delivered in approximately one week of request.
  • If you've searched the eJournal Finder for a journal that has an article you want and find that the SUU library dosn't have access to that journal. Articles will be delivered as electronic (pdf) copies to your Interlibrary Loan account, usually within a few days.

Google Books

Although Google Books seldom delivers the complete text of a recently-published book, it can be very useful for viewing books' tables of contents and other information.
