M E 202: Professional Planning

This guide will introduce students in ME 202 to finding and using library resources for mechanical engineering research, plus library services that can help make research easier, faster, and cheaper.

Welcome to the library research guide for M E 202: Professional Planning!

Welcome to your library guide for M E 202: Professional Planning. This guide will introduce you to library resources and services that will help you do better and more efficient research to support projects in other mechanical engineering classes you will take later on, and help you create a foundation for doing solid research as an engineer.

We'll start by showing how the concepts you learned in Lib 160 can be adapted to engineering research, and introduce some specific tools, collections, and services that will be useful to you as a student in mechanical engineering.

If you need assistance beyond what is provided in this guide, please contact your librarian.
