New engineering e-books

The USF Libraries have acquired three Referex ebook collections from Elsevier, in support of engineering, chemistry, environmental sciences, and related fields.

Referex bundles a wide-ranging selection of handbooks and practical guides published by Butterworth-Heinemann, Elsevier, and Academic Press in support of engineering and the sciences. It can be searched across all titles by full-text or key word. Within each collection, users can narrow their search, and view books by chapter and section. Chapters and sections can be read online or, downloaded as a PDF and printed. USF acquired three Referex collections with close to 400 titles.

All titles can be searched in conjunction with USF’s subscriptions to the Inspec and Compendex databases on the Engineering Village 2 platform. The books (and the full-text) are also accessible through the catalog.

Referex: Mechanical Engineering and Materials, a collection of handbooks, professional resources, and practical guides covering automotive, aeronautical, and marine engineering, metallurgy, tribology, maintenance, quality systems, health and safety.
