Engineering, Physics

Most materials are acquired in the English language with occasional books and some periodicals in German and French. Major reference works are acquired in all Western European languages.
To provide the materials necessary to support the undergraduate and graduate course instruction program, the graduate thesis research program and the research activities of the Faculty. In order to accomplish this, the Department is building comprehensive research collections in certain areas of study.

To provide the materials to support the work of the Nuclear Reactor, particularly in its novel uses.

Most material comes from North America and Europe. Atomic Energy reports are acquired from everywhere.

Emphasis is on the acquisition of current material. Material more than ten years old is rarely acquired.

  • Books, mostly currently produced
  • Periodicals, including the occasional backfile and indexing and abstracting services.
  • Government technical reports, especially those of the various atomic energy commissions around the world. There is an intense need for this material.
  • Company reports.
  • Laboratory manuals and workbooks.
  • Books of tables, especially those of constants.
  • Thesis.
  • Reprints of symposia, conferences, etc., when available.
