Sherriff, Graham; Rand, Dustin – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2022
Exploration of "prior art"--the state of a technology's development, as manifested in literature, documentation, and artifacts--has many benefits for engineering students. It expands their understanding of the design problem, reveals a range of possible solutions, and develops research skills important to professional practice. While…

Chen, Xiaoju; Dommermuth, Emily; Benner, Jessica G.; Kuglitsch, Rebecca; Lewis, Abbey B.; Marsteller, Matthew R.; Mika, Katherine; Young, Sarah – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2022
Research data management is essential for high-quality reproducible research, yet relatively little is known about how research data management is practiced by graduate students in Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE). Prior research suggests that faculty in CEE delegate research data management to graduate students, prompting this…
