Over 100 Years of Engineering & Physics Citations

COMPENDEX (Engineering Index) has a new location and archive back to 1884. Search COMPENDEX via Engineering Village and multiply your research results with cross-searching of CRC’s ENGnetBASE and 2 major patent databases.

The INSPEC (Science Abstracts) archive for the years 1898-1968 is available for research in physics, electronics, electrical engineering, computers and control engineering.

The current INSPEC database for 1969-2005 is available through the Ovid interface with UC-eLinks to e-journal and print locations and ILL requesting. The INSPEC archive does not have UC-eLinks functionality, but please use the Roger and Melvyl catalogs to locate the articles you find.

COMPENDEX via the Ovid interface will be phased out at the end of March 2005. If you desire a training session on COMPENDEX, INSPEC, Web of Science or other online resources for your UCSD research group or department, please contact Susan Shepherd or Deborah Kegel.
