Geofacets and Knovel trials

Heriot-Watt currently has trials of two new resources, Knovel and Geofacets.

Knovel is an applied engineering resource, giving fully searchable online access to hundreds of eBooks and technical information about materials and properties.  (It is different to the Knovel eBooks provided by professional bodies such as IChemE.)

Geofacets is a maps database, which can be searched with geographic and keyword searches.  It is primarily aimed at geoscientists and petroleum engineers, but may be useful to staff and students from other disciplines.

These resources will be available until mid-March. Please send any feedback to your Subject Librarian.

Edinburgh campus staff/research postgraduates
The suppliers of Knovel and Geofacets will be at Edinburgh campus on Wednesday 25th February to give short demonstrations of Knovel and Geofacets, and to answer any questions you have about these products. Please sign up for these sessions via the links below:
