This groundbreaking book provides state-of-the-art information on one of the most useful library specialties. Engineering Libraries: Building Collections and Delivering Services is designed for information professionals at all levels of expertise, from new practitioners to specialists in science and engineering. It shows how you can provide top-notch service by designing programs around the genuine needs of the users.

Previous books in this field have generally covered only the engineering literature and databases.

The suggestions and advice are eminently practical and designed for immediate usability. It also reviews the state of scientific communication and progress toward digital libraries.

Engineering Libraries offers solid expertise on the fundamental issues of this branch of information science, including:
  • establishing a collection
