This guide will help you find and use Library resources for your assignments, dissertations, theses and other research. Please contact me if you would like further help or information.
Part of Materials Science & Engineering Database, CSA / ASCE Civil Engineering Abstracts provides citations, abstracts, and indexing of the serials literature in civil engineering and its complementary fields, including forensic engineering, management and marketing of engineering services, engineering education, theoretical mechanics and dynamics, and mathematics and computation. This database provides comprehensive international coverage as well as numerous non-serial publications. Many of the more recent records in the database include fields containing cited references, corresponding author's e-mail address, and publisher contact information.
Compendex database via the Engineering Village database platform.
Compendex is the most comprehensive interdisciplinary engineering database in the world with over 9 million records referencing 5,000 engineering journals and conference materials dating from 1884. Subject coverage includes nuclear technology, bioengineering, transportation, chemical and process engineering, light and optical technology, agricultural engineering and food technology, computers and data processing, applied physics, electronics and communications, control, civil, mechanical, materials, petroleum, aerospace and automotive engineering.
The Construction Information Service Online (CIS Online) provides electronic access to technical information including an index to a selection of standards, regulatory and advisory documents, guidance and other material for the UK construction industry. The online service provides bibliographic data such as document titles and summaries plus full text images, either Adobe pdf format or scanned facsimiles.

Digimap is an online map and data delivery service, offering a number of data collections. Digimap Ordnance Survey collection contains contemporary Ordnance Survey maps and map data. The Improvement Service data collection available via the Digimap Ordnance Survey Collection requires users to accept a separate end user licence.
Please note - downloading data for use in GIS or CAD applications requires specialised software which is NOT available on PCs in the Library.
Use your University DS login. Access restrictions apply. You must register with EDINA to use this service upon logging in for the first time, and all users must agree to the end user licence for the relevant Digimap Collection they wish to access.
GEOBASE via the Engineering Village database platform.
A multidisciplinary database supplying bibliographic information and abstracts for the earth sciences, ecology, geomechanics, human geography, physical geography, and oceanography. Includes both peer-reviewed titles and trade publications; refereed scientific papers; magazine articles; product reviews; directories and any other relevant material. It has a unique coverage of non-English language and less readily available publications including books, conference proceedings and reports.
A comprehensive resource for researchers in the Earth Sciences. Strathclyde has access to peer-reviewed journals on this platform, and to 2011-2019 GeoScienceWorld eBook content. Strathclyde also has access to the GeoRef bibliographic database and thesaurus, which are integrated into the GeoScienceWorld platform.
Specify-it contains product and supplier information for building and civil engineering. It provides up to date product catalogues for designers, specifiers and purchasers in construction, civil engineering and process engineering. The service allows users to search for and identify products and suppliers to meet their exact project requirements - and to have immediate access to full-text, full-colour catalogues, data sheets, selector guides and brochures from the relevant suppliers listed. It includes over 750,000 pages of full-text catalogues from more than 5,500 manufacturers and suppliers.
Library books are arranged by the Dewey Decimal classification scheme whereby each subject is represented by a number.
You wil find books on the same subject will have the same number. The shelfmark is preceded by the letter D and will be followed by 3 letters, which are usually the first 3 letters of the author's name.
Here are some useful shelfmarks.
D 551 Geology and hydrology
D 624.1 Structural engineering and underground construction
D 625 Engineering of roads and railroads
D 628 Environmental engineering
D 690 Construction of buildings
