The MSU Libraries now has access to Engineering Case Studies Video Online: http://search.alexanderstreet.com.proxy1.cl.msu.edu/engv . This resource contains both video and text resources. While most of the videos portray engineering failure such as the Challenger accident, others highlight important engineering achievements such as the building of the Roman roads. Below is the publisher’s description of this new resource:
"Engineering Case Studies in Video is the first comprehensive resource to provide in-depth, impartial analysis of key engineering failures. Engineering Case Studies in Video offers 250 hours of video and 50,000 pages of text resources to meet this growing need. It provides in-depth coverage for 50 of the most frequently taught and seminal case studies around the world together with supplementary materials from more than 1,000 additional failures. All materials in Engineering Case Studies Online are cultivated by expert editors, with the assistance of an advisory board of engineering librarians and faculty. Materials come from a wide range of content partners, including the National Transportation Safety Board, BBC, Future Media, ABC, National Geographic, and engineering associations such as the American Society of Civil Engineers and the National Society of Professional Engineers."

The Engineering Library will be closed on the following Saturdays because the building will be closed during home football games.
We have a new scanner in the Engineering Library Copy Center that allows users to save their scans to Google Docs, a USB drive or send them to their email. The cost is 5 cents per page scanned. In addition, users now have the option of faxing their scanned documents over the Internet. The cost for faxing is 50 cents/page to numbers in the US & Canada and $1.00/page for international faxes.

Keeping It Green: Environmental Engineering At Work
This exhibit displays selected books about environmental engineering from the collection of the Engineering Library.
“Environmental engineering is a profession that applies mathematics and science to utilize the properties of matter and sources of energy in the solution of problems of environmental sanitation. These include the provision of safe, palatable, and ample public water supplies; the proper disposal of or recycle of wastewater and solid wastes; the adequate drainage of urban and rural areas for proper sanitation; and the control of water, soil, and atmospheric pollution, and the social and environmental impact of these solutions... Historically, environmental engineering has been a specialty area of civil engineering. Today it is still primarily associated with civil engineering in academic curricula."
- From Davis, Mackenzie. Introduction to Environmental Engineering 5th ed. New York: McGraw-Hill, 2013. page 2.
