Senior Design (E90) Reports

  • E90 Reports (1988-date)  Icon
    The library has scanned E90 reports back to 1988. 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).


  • Google Scholar  Icon  Icon  Icon
    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!
  • Web of Science  Icon  Icon  Icon
    Provides access to the Social Sciences Citation Index, Science Citation Index, and Arts and Humanities Citation Index. Search for scholarly articles in any discipline, or for articles that cite a known author or work. Coverage varies.
