Update on the New Engineering Library and the Jen-Hsun Huang Engineering Center

The Science and Engineering Libraries will be merging the active Computer Science collection currently in the Mathematical and Computer Science Library into the Engineering Library over Spring Break (March 22-26). The CS collection item location will be changed by batch process to ENG and all items will be remarked. Computer Science reserve items will be available in the Engineering Library for Spring Term. (For more information about the collection move and the renamed Mathematics and Statistics Library, see the SULAIR News article, The Computer Science Collection Is Moving!" by Linda Yamamoto.) The active Physics collection from the Physics and Applied Physics Library in the Varian Physics Building will merge into the new Engineering Library in June after graduation.

Standards @ the Engineering Library

Standards organizations
The Engineering Library is pleased to announce a substantial increase in our Standards collection. We have just subscribed to an online standards collection from TechStreet. The collection includes complete standards collections from ACI, ASCE , ASME, EI/IP, ICC, and NFPA as well as selected standards from ISO and IEC. For more information, check out our Standards Research Guide.

2010: The New Engineering Library Odyssey

By this time next year the Engineering Library will have moved to its new home in the Jen-Hsun Huang School of Engineering Center. As the date for the move approached we thought we’d try to make the new building a little more concrete and less paper.

In last 20 years, the application of Predictive Modeling has gradually evolved and has become popular in many B2C companies. These applications range from offline targeted marketing to real-time credit card fraud detection. In these uses, an entity (typically a customer) is characterized by its static (demographic, psychographic, etc) and more importantly dynamic behavioral attributes usually derived from transactional data.


Containing over 2.0 million bibliographic records, the NTIS Database is the preeminent resource for accessing the latest research sponsored by the United States and select foreign governments.Contents include research reports, computer products, software, video cassettes, audio cassettes and more. The complete electronic file dates back to 1964. On average, NTIS has added over 60,000 new records per year to the Database over the past ten years. Most records include abstracts. Access via NTRL (National Technical Reports Library) also includes full-text access to more than 500,000 documents.
