EBSCO Academic eBooks

One large collection that UM-Dearborn community members have access to through the Mardigian Library is EBSCO Academic eBooks.

The following video is from EBSCO and shows you how to download and read an eBook from their collection. 

General Scientific Knowledge Journals

Directory of Open Access Journals  
Free, full text, quality controlled scientific and scholarly journals. More than 6,250 journals are included in the directory with nearly 3,000 journals searchable at article level. DOAJ aims to cover all subjects and languages.

The Directory of Open Access Repositories - OpenDOAR  
OpenDOAR is an authoritative directory of more than 1,800 academic open access repositories. As well as providing a simple repository list, OpenDOAR lets you search for repositories or search repository contents. The current directory lists repositories and allows breakdown and selection by a variety of criteria (e.g., subject area, content type, and country).

New Arrivals at the Mardigian



For an in-depth and comprehensive exploration on a topic a book may be the best choice. 

The Mardigian Library provides members of the UM-Dearborn community with access to an extensive collection of eBooks available on or off campus. Specific directions on gaining access to our resources from a wireless connection or off campus are available on the home page of this guide.

This link HERE is a good place to start if you are looking for an eBook on an Engineering topic from the Mardigian Library. From here you can use the list of filters on the left side of the screen to narrow your search. A good way to narrow in this case would be to go to the drop down menu called "subject terms" and select "more" which will give you a whole list of tags to select with the check mark (this will prioritize books with those tags) or to "X" (this will exclude books with that tag.)

For large collections of eBooks see the "Databases" tab in the left column. 

As always, if you need any help finding the right resource please email me using the button under my picture on the home page of this guide.

Electronic Journals

Electronic Journals

If you are looking for a quick read, breaking information on a very current topic, or some very specific information, a journal (also called a periodical, or a serial, or a magazine) is likely the resource for you.


Below are some of the Engineering and Technology journals we subscribe to. These journals are available to read in BrowZine from your browser or the mobile app and can be added to your personal "bookshelf" if you create a personal login. This interface is very helpful if you want to search for a journal by title and be able to read whole issues or keep up-to-date on what is being published in your favorite sources.



Many more academic journals can be found within the databases we subscribe to. There they can be searched at the article level (vs. at the journal title level above.) You can search by keyword, article topic, title, date, or author. See the "Databases" tab on the left to search specific article collections.
