Just in time for Canada Day–the Libraries have purchased a subscription to the INSPEC database. INSPEC replaces the Killam Library’s subscription to the print version of Physics Abstracts.
INSPEC is a leading bibliographic database providing access to the world’s scientific literature in electrical engineering, electronics, physics (including Physics Abstracts), biomedical technology, control engineering, information technology, communications, computers, computing, and manufacturing and production engineering. The database contains over 11.2 million bibliographic records from scientific and technical journals and conference proceedings.
Online coverage is from 1969 to the present, and records are updated weekly. INSPEC is produced by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
