Engineering Education & Research: Getting Started @ The Libraries

This guide provides you with resources to support engineering education practice and research.

Getting Started @ The Libraries

10 Things to Get You Started @ The Libraries

  1. Contact me, your EED librarian, if you have any questions - research help, literature searches, instruction requests, suggestions for our collection, etc.
  2. Off campus? Make sure to use the UF VPN to get access to all the Libraries have to offer - journals, books, and databases. 
  3. Bookmark the Science Library and follow us
  4. Need articles? Search a database! Find ones appropriate for your research on the Information Resources tab of this guide.
  5. Looking for a book or journal? Search the UF Catalog. You can also renew your items and check your library account using Primo.
  6. Need something UF doesn't own? Use Interlibrary Loan to request it and we'll get it for you using our global library network. More info can be found here.
  7. Need course material? Use Course Reserves to access the textbooks, readings, and other resources for your classes.  
  8. Want to keep your references for your paper organized? Learn about options to keep track of your references and generate bibliographies from the Citation Management guide.
  9. More than just books! Reserve a study room or check out all the tech & tools we have to offer. 
    [NOTE: Some services and items may be currently unavailable due to COVID-19]
  10. Need to print or scan? Marston has B&W, Color, and Plotter printers. Print costs range from $0.08/page to $3.00/foot and can be found here: https://print.at.ufl.edu/help/pricing/. Scanners are located on the 1st & 2nd floors.​

Open Ed Resources (OER)

Open Education Resources (OER) are freely available curricular materials. Below is a listing of various repositories.

Searching the Literature

remember by Julynn B. from the Noun ProjectRemember: When accessing the Libraries' online resources off-campus make sure you are using the UF VPN.

Books and E-Books

The best way to find books and E-books is to use the Primo search tool. This tool searches across many of our resources, including the UF Libraries catalog. Click on the red buttons below to learn more about how to search in Primo.

Databases

In addition to engineering databases like Compendex (Engineering Village) and IEEE Explore, UF has many education-related databases.

Conference Papers, Preprints, & Other Documents

Writing & Citing

Authorship

How is collaborative research defined in your discipline?

  • It's important to establish roles and authorship at the beginning of a project, and create partnering agreements. 
  • Who should be the authors of your article, and who merits acknowledgement rather than authorship?  
  • Consider the widely-recognized standards of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), which state authorship credit should be based upon these criteria.

Managing Your References

These programs will save you hours--literally!--of time. Citation management software can store all your articles and reformat them to meet the requirements of just about any journal. Just remember to proofread your works cited (or bibliography or references) page in case a citation wasn't formed properly in a database.

Want to Learn More About Impact & Ranking?

Use the Research Metrics Guide to find out:

  • How to locate impact factors for individual journals using tools such as Journal Citation Reports (JCR) and SCImago Journal and Country Rank (SJR)
  • How to conduct citation analysis by author and by article
  • New and alternative ways to measure influence and impact of research
  • Information on traditional and alternative forms of peer review

Identifying Predatory Journals

The issue of predatory journals is on the increase. Here is a short presentation about Navigating Questionable Publishing Practices

Below are some tips from the library to evaluate potential publication venues prior to submitting:

  • Reputable journals are included in databases such as InCites Journal Citation Reports, PubMed, Compendex, or Web of Science which apply rigorous criteria for scholarship and adherence to best publishing practices.

  • Check a journal for transparent policies, particularly regarding editorial board composition, peer-review and reasonable author processing fees. Think, Check, Submit offers a great checklist to help you evaluate a journal’s credibility.

  • Reputable journal publishers tend to be members of organizations such as COPE or OASPA and adhere to these organizations’ recommended practices for ethical, transparent scholarly publishing.

Need help evaluating? Contact me at abuhler@ufl.edu. Perry Collins (perrycollins@ufl.edu), our Copyright and Open Educational Resources Librarian, is also a great resource.
