How Engineering Village Works

Whether it’s preparing for a paper, a grant or funding proposal, a request for new research allocations, a detailed patent application, or simply an interest in acquiring new engineering knowledge, Engineering Villages provides the most comprehensive information you need.

Engineering Village interface update

In August, Engineering Village will update and refresh its user interface to improve usability. The updated interface will provide a modern interface experience and has all the previous navigation and high quality functionality that users rely upon for managing engineering research. This interface refresh project is completed with user input via focus groups and interviews with librarians and users.

You can preview interface updates at the Engineering Village Beta Website

Visit Engineering Village Beta Website

Highlights of the interface update include:

  1. New Header navigation: The new header includes Search options (quick, expert and thesaurus-based search), Results, Alerts and selected records.
  2. Quick Search options: The main search options such as the Database(s) selection, Date, Language and Document Type are all contained in one navigation section below the form.
  3. Personalization details: Personalized features such as Alerts & Saved searches and My preferences are now grouped under a pull-down menu.
