Franklin, Hugh Lockwood, Comp.
Mechanical engineering has become highly interdisciplinary. It would not be possible to single out particular reference sources that are uniquely applicable to mechanical engineering. For the purpose of this guide, mechanical engineering deals with the generation, transmission and utilization of heat and mechanical power and with the production of tools, machines, and their products. This document is a survey of information sources in mechanical engineering and is intended to identify those core resources which can help engineers and librarians to find information about the discipline. Sections include: (1) "Guides to the Literature"; (2) "Bibliographies"; (3) "Indexing and Abstracting Services"; (4) "Computer Databases"; (5) "Dictionaries and Encyclopedias"; (6) "Yearbooks and Review Series"; (7) "Handbooks and Manuals"; (8) "Directories of Organizations, Manufacturers and Products"; (9) "Biographical Sources"; and (10) "Standards and Specifications."
