Introduction to Ryerson Library for Engineering Students

First place to look

The Engineering Village platform is generally your first place to look for engineering, manufacturing and technology topics. You can use it to locate journal articles, books, conference proceedings etc. It is our access point to four databases, Compendex, Inspec, GEOBASE and GeoRef.

Tips for searching:
  • Search one database at a time
  • Limit your document type to journals to start
  • Try Searching in only "Subject/Title/Abstratct" instead of "All Fields"
  • Use a date limit for your topic if appropriate.

Click on the Get it! Ryerson button to determine if we have full text access to the material.
