Landolt-Börnstein, the largest compilation of data in physics and chemistry, celebrated its 125th birthday on 29 September 2008. The reference work was published by the physicist Hans Landolt and the chemist Richard Börnstein in 1883; in the New Series, it now comprises more than 360 printed volumes and over 55,000 electronic documents for engineers and scientists.
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.
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 Research Guide.

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.
