ENGL 1551 -- Writing 2 for Engineering Students: Books

Finding Books

MaagNet Books

Check Maag Library first for books, government documents, e-books (electronic books) and other materials. Search by subject, keyword, author, or title.  Once an item has been selected, copy or print the publication information (author, title, publisher, date) found on the title page of the book or from the catalog record so the item can be properly cited later. For assistance in creating Works Cited or Bibliographic References pages see Citing Resources.  Finally, note the item’s Call Number and Location, then check the Building Guide.

OhioLink Books

Search OhioLINK for items not available at Maag Library but owned by other Ohio colleges and universities.  If an item's status indicates it is available, it may be requested from another OhioLINK institution. Follow the OhioLINK Borrowing Service procedure to request them or view our tutorial. Typically, such items take 3-5 business days (Monday through Friday) to arrive. To see the status of a request, check your Library Account. For search help, see About the OhioLINK Central Catalog.

Finding Electronic Books

In addition to print monographs, some full-text, scholarly, scientific monographs may be found through the Electronic Book Center (EBC). Use any of the following keyword search terms "Automotive and Aerospace Engineering," "Biomedical Engineering," "Chemical Engineering," "Civil Engineering," “Electrical Engineering,” “Industrial and Production Engineering,” “Mechanical Engineering” 'Materials Science," "Mechanics," or “Engineering Design.”

Three other collections of electronic books are Safari Books, Wiley Online Books, and  the EBSCO E-Book Collections.
