We’ve had several requests to update our engineering book collection, which is (we admit) hopelessly out of date. Here are a few things in the works: we now have a subject specialist librarian devoted to engineering: Melanie Golder, mgolder@smu.edu, x83936. If you have a request for a specific book, let her know.
Second, we’re looking at some packages of electronic books specifically focused on engineering. We may be conducting trials in the future of some of these so keep an eye on the CUL website for more information. And third, we’re always trying to get more current journals in this area to supplement what’s lacking in books.
Thanks for your suggestions, and we’ll keep working on it!
