Engineering Index Backfile Completed

:: From the v2 n6, Dec 2004 Ei Update:

After more than 18 months of development, the Engineering Index Backfile, the electronic alternative for accessing hard to find historical information has now been completed.

Engineering Index Backfile users will have access to over 1.7 million historical references that cover virtually every major engineering innovation from 1884 through 1969. When the Engineering Index Backfile is combined with the Compendex Database it will provide the most comprehensive overview of the last 120 years of engineering literature.

Access to the Engineering Index Backfile will provide users with references that have never been available electronically. For example, a reference from September 24, 1896 gives an account of a new bridge linking Brooklyn, NY and Manhattan. From December 1, 1901, Wilbur Wright addresses the difficulties regarding the building of the first plane.

The Engineering Index Backfile is available exclusively on Engineering Village 2. For additional information including trialing the product, please contact the Ei Customer Support Team at eicustomersupport@elsevier.com.
