Welcome to the subject guide for engineering, electronics, materials science, mathematics and physics. This guide has been compiled by your subject librarian and will help you find the information you need for your work.

This guide has been divided into different sections, each covering a different type of resource, such as Books, Journals and so forth. Each section has a menu with further, more specific options, such as "Journals for all course" or "What to do if a book is not available in the Library".
