While access to abstracts, full text and references are "secured to subscribers", non-subscribers can use this resource to browse the tables of contents or search (all words, any words, exact phrase, Boolean search) within the various titles or search the full database (full text, abstracts, authors, title and limit by date).

Unfortunately, the IMechE Archives does NOT include the IMechE Conference volumes. The IMechE Library Catalogue is available for searching at: http://62.173.95.116/olibcgi/ntxcgi.exe

"Over 60,000 records are held on the catalogue, which provides details of all books, journals, conferences, seminars, preprints, pamphlets, standards and lectures held by the library. IMechE conference, seminar and proceedings papers are abstracted back to 1984."

EBSCO's MetaPress To Host 150-Year Old Archives of IMechE

:: From 22 August 2005 Knowledgespeak News:

The UK's Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), a publisher and engineering association, has entered into a deal with subscription agent EBSCO, US, to offer its journals and new backfile archives via the latter's service. Professional Engineering Publishing, the publishing arm of ImechE, has said that the move is part of its plan to introduce its Digital Archive of Proceeding. EBSCO will host all prominent IMechE publications - current as well as archives dating back to 150 years - through its MetaPress web hosting platform.

Last month, in a similar move, six scientific and technical publishers including the engineering publishers National Defence Industrial Association (NDIA) and the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology, Hungarian Akadémiai Kiadó and academic publisher Baywood Publishing, had added their content to the EBSCO platform.
