Six new online encyclopedias are now available. You can read them online, search within them, and download or print sections of interest.
Engineering Case Studies Online is an innovative new resource that focuses on the analysis of engineering failures. It covers more than 50 of the most frequently taught case studies including:
Each case includes a collection of materials that provide in-depth analysis of the disasters including feature-length video documentaries, relevant books explaining key engineering concepts and issues, simulations, primary footage of accidents, engineering ethics, and other materials not normally found in the scholarly literature.
Materials come from a variety of reliable content partners including the BBC, the Digital Rights Group, Princeton University Press, and the American Society of Civil Engineers.
The science and engineering libraries are holding a series of workshops during Spring Semester that can help you get the most out of freely available as well as Berkeley subscribed resources. Workshops include:
Check out the schedule on our Events Calendar. All workshops are drop-in - no registration required.
