Are you interested in working for or developing products in the aerospace industry? Want to research the latest information on small satellites or reusable rockets? Want to know about Europe’s Clean Sky research program? Have you booked your trip to the moon?
Is your passion sustainability and green buildings? Need information on new materials and green products for buildings and landscaping? The Stanford Libraries subscribe to the BuildingGreen Suite which includes access to current articles, product specifications, case studies and LEED resources. Also included in this resource is the full-text current issue and archive of Environmental Building News (EBN). You can also download articles from EBN to your tablet or smartphone.
Interested in balancing your portfolio or partnering with companies that have a “greener” footprint? It isn't just about carbon or fossil fuels; it's also about water, land use, waste and pollutants. It's about which raw materials are used and where they are sourced, from energy and water to metals, minerals and agricultural products. And it's about how those materials are extracted, processed and distributed.
Finding the best tool for your research and using it efficiently is a challenge for all students. The Stanford Libraries offer workshops to help you increase your skill level and explore new resources. Sign-up to learn about citation management tools such as Mendeley, EndNote and RefWorks as well as how to search for grants, patents, chemical information, energy information and how to keep current with new research. This year we have added a new workshop on tips and tools for publishing.
For the second year in a row, students from ME310 Project Based Engineering Design submitted their final projects to the SDR for preservation. With the submission of these 19 projects, we also preserved the Winter quarter reports for the students’ design projects. This year’s projects covered a variety of products from construction equipment to designing a better way to chill a drink to creating a better flying experience for passengers with limited mobility. These projects help inform future classes about design process as well as create a network of contacts for future work.
