For journal articles, clicking on "Find It @ GT" works properly for most, but not all, journal papers. Links to either the electronic full text or to the Library Catalog record
For conference papers, technical reports and other formats, "Find It @ GT" often does not work properly. If "Find @ GT" does not work, check the Library Catalog. The Georgia Tech Library owns a very large number of conference papers and technical reports that cannot be retrieved by clicking on the full text icon. Most technical reports owned by the Library are not in the Catalog.
If the journal or conference paper is not available electronically, either through a Georgia Tech Library subscription or through a free website, fill out an ILLiad document delivery photocopy (PDF) request form at http://illiad.library.gatech.edu/ . This applies to materials owned by the Library and also to materials owned by other libraries (obtained through interlibrary loan).
The Inspec database (Engineering Village platform, 1896 to present) is available to only Georgia Tech registered users.
Search both the Inspec database and the Compendex database together; check both boxes under Databases. These two databases are complementary and only have about a 20 percent overlap. Duplicate records can be removed by clicking of "Remove Duplicates" (left column) and "Database Preference"
Add the PaperChem database for pulp and paper science technology.
The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Inspec database, containing over 15 million records, is the world's largest and most comprehensive English-language bibliographic database in physics, electronics and computing. Developed from 'Science Abstracts', first published in January 1898, Inspec scans over 4,000 journals, 2,000 conference proceedings, books and other formats, much of which is not available anywhere else.
The five main subject areas covered are physics; electrical engineering and electronics; computers and control; information technology for business; and mechanical and production engineering.
Weekly email alerts can be set-up.
Inspec Analytics explores the interconnected data within the Georgia Tech Library’s Inspec database to uncover patterns and trends in engineering, computing, and physics research. With the new database, you can:
You can access Inspec Analytics at https://inspec-analytics-app.theiet.org, using VPN if you are working remotely. The Inspec database is also available at https://libguides.gatech.edu/az.php?q=inspec. Go to the top row, click Search, and select the drop-down menu choice, Inspec Analytics.
Contact your Georgia Tech Library Subject Librarian for assistance.
The Institution of Engineering and Technology uses semantic technology to connect each element of the literature indexed in their Inspec database (author, organization, publication, date, subject keywords, etc.) to create the Inspec knowledge graph. Inspec Analytics allows you to navigate this map of science to identify and compare research trends across thousands of organizations and scientific concepts.
Inspec Analytics is included with the library’s Inspec subscription.
For additional information, review the Inspec Analytics user guide.
