The library has scanned E90 reports back to 1986. PDFs of these reports are available in Triceratops, the TriCollege Digital Repository under "Student Scholarship" / Senior Theses & Projects / Engineering". When browsing these reports, you can re-sort by Issue Date, Title, Author or Subject (be sure to select "This Collection" to browse the E90 reports). They are also available in PRINT, back to 1986, upstairs in Cornell's book collection: TA174 .E53.
A recent study revealed that Google Scholar had a 90% matching rate with COMPENDEX for materials published after 1990. Since Compendex is THE Engineering Index, using Google Scholar, perhaps in conjunction with Web of Science for any pre-1990 publications, should get you the articles you need for any Engineering research. Use the "Check Tripod" and "Find it @ Swarthmore" links to see if we have access to full text. Not in Tripod? Also look for access to PDFs & look through "all x versions" - you can often find full-text articles even though we don't subscribe to them! If you can't find unsubscribed-to article here, don't hesitate to use InterLibrary Loan!
