ACM DL is the most comprehensive collection of full-text articles and bibliographic records in the fields of computing and information technology.
ACM publishes peer-reviewed journals in computing and information technology and constitute an archive of computing innovation in emerging and established computing research. Conference proceedings capture innovation across the various computing fields. ACM Books is a series of research monographs and includes books across the entire spectrum of computer science.
Hosted by Engineering Village this is the largest and most comprehensive interdisciplinary engineering database available
Engineering areas covered include: mechanical, civil, environmental, electrical, structural, process, materials science, solid state physics and superconductivity, bioengineering, energy, chemical, optics, air and water pollution, solid waste management, hazardous waste, road transportation, and transportation safety. Coverage: 1970 to present.
Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature.
Using this link to access Google Scholar, you will see “is it @ Liverpool” next to results.
Clicking ''Is it @ Liverpool' will provide a link to the access the article, if University of Liverpool Library has licenced (i.e. paid-for) access to it.
Full text database of IEEE and IET publications. Provides access to technical literature in electrical engineering, computer sciences and electronics.
IEEE Xplore is the online publishing platform of IEEE and hosts publications from IEEE, the IET and IBM. We have full-text access to all IEEE journals, conference proceedings, standards and books all IET journals and conference proceedings and both IBM journals. IEEE journals now typivally offer full-text back to the first volume.
Good for interdisciplinary subjects, searching for authors and tracking down citations
Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research. Updated daily, Scopus covers nearly 18,000 titles from more than 5,000 international publishers, including coverage of 16,500 peer-reviewed journals and 3.6 million conference papers. Scopus contains 40 million records, of which 20 million records going back to 1996 include the complete metadata and 20 million pre-1996 records without references.
Bibliographic science focused database that provides a comprehensive citation search.
Web of Science (previously known as Web of Knowledge) is the Thomson Reuters database platform that provides access to the combined online versions of Arts & Humanities Citation Index (1975-current), Science Citation Index Expanded (1899-current), Social Sciences Citation Index (1898-current) and Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science(1990-current) - together with BIOSIS Previews (1969-current), Medline (1950-current) and Journal Citation Reports (2000-current).
Includes the full text of all current and withdrawn British Standards
Standards give you guidance on best practice. This online tool gives access to standards and enables you to build your own database of relevant standards. You can access standards, such as ISO, EN, BS, PAS, ASTM, and IEC through BSOL. Log-on via appsanywhere http://www.liv.ac.uk/csd/appsanywhere/.
Includes access to the full collection of standards from ASTM
The platform contains the current and historical ASTM standards and related technical engineering publications, including several ASTM journals and ASTM Symposia Papers and Special Technical Publications, and manuals. It contains nearly every ASTM book, paper, or chapter from nearly every piece of work published by ASTM.
A free online service for searching worldwide patents and patent applications, developed by the European Patent Office (EPO)
esp@cenet contains data on 60 million patent applications and patents, currently from 76 countries. The "Worldwide" database enables you to search for information on published patent documents from more than 70 countries and regions. The "EP - esp@cenet" database contains those patent documents which were published by the European Patent Office (EPO) in the last two years. The "EP - esp@cenet" database does not contain any patent applications submitted to a national patent office. Similarly, the "WIPO - esp@cenet" database only contains patent documents which were published in the last two years.
