RSVP here

Learn to access resources to answer questions such as:

  • I am looking for Mechanical Properties, for example, Shear Strength of Carbon Fibers. Where can I find this information? Are ASTM and other standards available?
  • Are there any engineering data repositories available where I can deposit and access data as needed?
  • I am trying to find well published collaborators from different institutions to work on a project related to Structural Health Monitoring. How can I find them?
  • How do I refine my searches so that I do not have to go through hundreds of citations to pull up relevant papers?
  • How do I set up alerts in Engineering Village so that I can find the latest papers presented at various conferences or papers published in journals?
  • I am confused about how patents are classified. I was told that in searching for patents efficiently, I need to know the classification system. Where can I find that information?
  • I am graduating this year and I want to expand my search to find companies that might be interested in my areas of expertise.  What are some ways of finding them? 
  • I would like to continue my PhD on a topic related to Smart Cities and Smart Grids at Virginia Tech. I need to find a faculty adviser there. How do I go about finding a possible professor who can guide me in my dissertation?
  • I have started writing my PhD thesis, but I also need to refer to relevant PhD dissertations from other institutions. How can I get them in Full Text?
  • What do I do if I am not able to find a full text paper that I need? Are there any other sources that can help me?
