Calling all student members......

With the pressure on to write effective projects and prepare for dissertations, where do you go for help? ……


The IET library of course!  Here are some examples of the resources open to you:


The IET virtual library – is just a click away.  Log on to the IET website and you gain immediate access to a host of electronic resources.  There are full text electronic books through Knovel, Wiley and the Engineering and IT Reference Library (hosted by books 24x7) which include handbooks and very up to date publications which are useful for your studies.  For articles, reports and company data look at the seven EbscoHost databases which have each been selected for their suitability to electrical and electronic topics as well as a huge business database. Much  of what is available is full text.  You can do all sorts of in-depth searches and you can even adjust the interface to suit you. If you are exploring the employment field you might want to try checking out the datamonitor company  profiles on EbscoHost – just click on “more” in the blue bar at the top.  Another virtual library resources is Faulkner databases  which provides expert reports and tutuorials on industry developments and technologies.


The IET library has literally thousands of books to borrow.  Search the library catalogue  to find out what’s available on your topic and then make use of the free postage to have the books sent to you by courier. 


The Library reading room is at the IET in London so if this is convenient , you can have a browse on the shelves for books as well as accessing thousands of print journals.  We also have the IEEE Xplore database and  some British Standards online in the reading room – with these you can search full text IEEE and IET articles and standards.  If you like we can also give you a demonstration of the Virtual Library (by appointment).


If you would also like to make use of the Library’s research service please email .  We can often point you in the right direction for your studies but please no essay titles – be specific!  The service is often free for small pieces of information but charges may apply depending on what we can offer. 

For further details please contact the IET Library on T:  +44 (0)20 7344 5461
