Engineering Journals and Periodicals

The Engineering Library subscribes to hundreds of journals both in print/hard copy and online. To find out if we have a particular journal, search for the title in the UW Libraries Search. Click above for help finding journals and more information about getting an article from a journal we don't subscribe to.

Finding Journals in the University of Washington Libraries

Journals and Periodicals in the Engineering Library are shelved in call number order on the 2nd floor of the library.

To find out if the UW Libraries owns a particular journal and get its call number, the UW Libraries Search is your primary source. The search system includes journals in all formats: print, electronic, cd-rom, microfiche, and microfilm. If the Library subscribes to a journal online, there will be a link from the Libraries Search to the online publication. You can also find e-journals here:

Finding Articles

If you are searching for individual articles within a journal, visit the Engineering, Scientific, & Technical Databases page, or the UW Libraries Articles and Research Databases page and search a subject database for individual article titles.

Getting articles not owned by the UW Libraries

  • Interlibrary Loan
    Used to request entire volumes of journals, as well as individual journal articles not owned by the UW Libraries. It is usually faster and more efficient to request only the article or articles that you need. Many libraries do not loan out entire journal volumes.
