To register for the training, please contact Madeleine Lee at [email protected] and include "Knovel & EV training" in the subject line of the email and be sure to let us know which session you would like to attend.
This training will inform users about how these two resources complement each other and work together.
The Engineering Village is an information discovery platform designed by and for the engineering community, with engineering literature from reliable sources, including journals, conference proceedings, trade publications, patents, government reports, and articles in press. Users have easy access to the most comprehensive resource for engineering information and can be confident search results are relevant, complete, accurate and of high quality.
Knovel is a cloud-based application that provides quick and accurate answers to core research and technical problem-solving questions. What makes Knovel unique is a tight integration of three key elements that deliver answers engineers can trust and ultimately drive innovation. The three elements are: validated content, search optimized for engineers and data analysis tools. Content includes process and design information, best practice insights, interactive graphs and tables, material and substance properties data, and equations and formulations for specific industries and engineering disciplines.
