The NanoEngineering collection supports the research interests and instructional activities of faculty and students in the Department of NanoEngineering at UCSD, which was launched in 2007. The founding faculty were drawn from the other five departments in the Jacobs School of Engineering, including the Chemical Engineering Program that was previously part of the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Department. There are also affiliated faculty from the Departments of Bioengineering, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, and the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, The Department will focus on research and education in the areas of biomedical nanotechnology, molecular and nanomaterials, computational nanotechnology, and nanotechnologies for energy conversion.
Primary Library of Congress Call Numbers
Under the Library of Congress classification system (used at UCSD), nanoscience and nanotechnology materials are scattered many call numbers (QC176.8, QC611, QD181, R857, RA1270, RS201, T174.7, TA418, TA1530, TA 7874-7875, TP248.25) with an increasing number books available online. Most of the chemical engineering materials are in the TP range, primarily TP 155-156. For specific call numbers and or URLs, please check the online catalogs Roger and/or Melvyl.
