Electrical engineering reference resources: a survey from LibGuides

Electrical engineering reference resources: a survey from LibGuides Purpose – The purpose of this survey is to find a significant sample of reference resources for electrical engineering as they are presented in subject-specific LibGuides. Design/methodology/approach – The survey is based on a detailed observation and collection of sources designated as Reference Resources in LibGuides, titles found were compiled and organized. Findings – The results are substantial; they offered a body of specialized resources, which includes e-book collections, dictionaries, handbooks, encyclopedias and other resources that are important to electrical engineering students and researchers. Research limitations/implications – A considerable amount of resources were found; nevertheless, they represent the resources found in a randomly selected sample of LibGuides; therefore, the result is limited to the group of libraries selected. Practical implications – The results of this survey are valuable to subject librarians interested in comparing resources with a pool of libraries and to discover titles that can be of interest to their collections. Originality/value – The work is original, as this is the first paper publishing the results of a survey of electrical engineering guides. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Collection Building Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this survey is to find a significant sample of reference resources for electrical engineering as they are presented in subject-specific LibGuides. Design/methodology/approach – The survey is based on a detailed observation and collection of sources designated as Reference Resources in LibGuides, titles found were compiled and organized. Findings – The results are substantial; they offered a body of specialized resources, which includes e-book collections, dictionaries, handbooks, encyclopedias and other resources that are important to electrical engineering students and researchers. Research limitations/implications – A considerable amount of resources were found; nevertheless, they represent the resources found in a randomly selected sample of LibGuides; therefore, the result is limited to the group of libraries selected. Practical implications – The results of this survey are valuable to subject librarians interested in comparing resources with a pool of libraries and to discover titles that can be of interest to their collections. Originality/value – The work is original, as this is the first paper publishing the results of a survey of electrical engineering guides.
