The Ellen Clarke Bertrand Library

Chemical Engineering: Reference Sources

Engineering eBooks

Reference sources available online.  For engineers, the most common sort of "reference book" would be a Handbook -- its a collection of facts and figures, not something you would read through, just refer to, to get the fact that you need -- physical properties (the boiling point of methane), chemical formulas, definitions, and more.

Online textbooks

Textbooks and encyclopedia-style sources available online.

Essential Reference Books

Some printed reference books still provide essential information.  These are found on the shelves on the Main Floor of the Library.
