New Platform(Online Version) of EI Compendex On Trial (2006/11/06)

Dear All,

In order to support faculty members and students in their teaching, learning and research, the Library has already acquired a substantial number of electronic databases. In order to maintain the most updated versions for these databases and seek the best platform for access, the Library constantly liaises with database vendors to find the most user-friendly interface for our users to try out before purchase. The EI Compendex is the latest one of this kind.

EI Compendex -- It is a bibliographic database on engineering research, containing over 9 million references and abstracts taken from over 5,000 engineering journals, conferences and technical reports. We note that the latest version of this database is an online one instead of the CD-ROM version, and should enable a more effective and efficient access. Please try it out at until 30th November 2006.

You can try it out via the campus network. You may use the link provided in "Trial Databases" at our website or directly access their website for your search.

Please kindly give us your comments on this online database on trial at
