Engineering Information’s Compendex Database adds 10 millionth record - 06 Aug 2007 Source: Knowledgespeak Newsletter: “Engineering Information (Ei), Inc., a US-based provider of online information to engineering researchers, has announced that the 10 millionth record has been added to the Compendex database and loaded on the Engineering Village discovery platform. Compendex is a bibliographic database covering published engineering literature, which is used by professional engineers, engineering students, researchers and information professionals worldwide.”
“Since its creation in 1969, Compendex has offered broad coverage of significant engineering literature available. The database has expanded its coverage steadily as the volume of published engineering literature has grown. More than 650,000 new records were added to the database in 2006 alone. Records are carefully selected and indexed to ensure a breadth of literature upon which researchers can rely. Compendex now covers over 5,600 serial sources each year, originating from over 55 countries.”
Princeton’s subscription to Compendex (EI Compendex Plus) goes all the way back to 1884.
