The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) publishes over 1,500 information resources each year, including technical papers from meetings and conferences, peer-reviewed journal articles, a membership magazine, textbooks, reference books, and standards. These are available in electronic format in the ASABE Online Technical Library. The publications are targeted to engineers, scientists, technicians, and others interested in the subject areas covered by ASABE.
ASME helps the global engineering community develop solutions to real world challenges. Founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME is a not-for-profit professional organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering disciplines, while promoting the vital role of the engineer in society. ASME codes and standards, publications, conferences, continuing education and professional development programs provide a foundation for advancing technical knowledge and a safer world. The Library has access to ASME journals and conference proceedings.
ASME sponsors approximately 30 conferences per year and publishes about 100 proceedings volumes annually, encompassing the entire spectrum of topics of interest to mechanical engineers and associated industries. Individual conference papers from 2002 onwards are available through the ASME Digital Library.
ABCB Codes & Standards database provides a nationally accepted and uniform set of technical requirements for all areas of building, from design to construction. The National Construction Code (NCC) was developed by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) on behalf of the Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments, and is referred to as the building regulation in all States and Territories of Australia. This service provides access to the National Construction Code (NCC), which consists of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) + the Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA), and the Australian Standards referenced by the codes.
SAI Global On-Line Premium is a web-based service that provides always up-to-date access to the full collection of Australian Standards, plus optional access to international Standards from ISO, IEC, EN, ETSI, NSAI, JSA, and a searchable index of standards from ANSI, BSI, DIN and ASTM.
FSTA - Food Science and Technology Abstracts, produced by the International Food Information Service (IFIS), is a database of information on food science, food technology and nutrition. The database includes material from over 4,600 serial publications, covering all the major food commodities plus biotechnology, microbiology, food safety, additives, nutrition, packaging and pet foods. Coverage spans from 1969 to present.
The IEEE Xplore Standards collection contains thousands of approved and published IEEE standards in key technology fields. Note: the Library's subscription does not include access to the Draft standards.
IHS Standards Expert provides access to the 12,000 standards that make up the 82 volume Annual Book of ASTM Standards Collection, and a limited selection of individual standards from other publishers, such as the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers).
