Presentation Transcript

  1. Chemical Engineering 06-363 Lab

  2. This will help you • Explore the vast body of chemical engineering literature • Compare your work (experiments) to what has been done by others • Communicate your efforts effectively by your ability to research the theory and practice of a given topic

  3. Fuel cells that use glycerol as fuel Research question: I am interested in articles that discuss fuel cells that use glycerol as a fuel—derived from biological sources, such as algae, biodiesel wastes, or yeast

  4. Where can I get Information? • Compendex • Engineering Index – all engineering fields • Can also search along with Inspec • Web of Science • Science Citation Index • SciFinder Scholar • Chemical Abstracts • Knovel • Full-text technical handbooks/reference texts • Scirus and Clusty search engines

  5. Compendex/Inspec

  6. Refine search: Compendex/Inspec • Choose headings from “Refine Results” part of the screen • Can also “Add a term” • Click “Include” tab to perform the search • To find a copy of the article, click

  7. Web of Science

  8. Cited Reference SearchWeb of Science

  9. SciFinder Scholar • Research Topic Search example: • fuel cells and yeast • Substances: Substance Identifier search: • Glycerol • Get References, • Refine by Research Topic: fuel cells

  10. Knovel search • glycerol AND fuel • Practice searching in Knovel • Try to win contest $50 Amazon gift card

  11. Try these search engines • Scirus • Clusty

  12. Something fun… • Video Contest • The Future of Chemical Engineering • Search “Future of ChemE” on YouTube (or Facebook) for AICHE 2008 Student Contest group • Contact me for your info needs: Donna Beck Engineering Librarian donnab@andrew.cmu.edu
