IET Digital Library launches flexible access scheme
Knowledge Packs will offer flexible access to the IET's Digital Library
The IET has launched a new flexible way to access over 190,000 technical documents in its Digital Library.
Known as Knowledge Packs, users can purchase 10 downloads for £75 which can then be used to access essential engineering research content covering a specialist range of subject areas from electrical and electronic engineering to mechanical and production engineering.
The collection of science, engineering and technology content, includes 70,000 articles from leading journals like Electronics Letters, as well as from 24 research journal titles covering specialist subject areas from Control Theory & Applications to Wireless Sensor Systems.
Users will also get access to the issues of the award-wining E&T magazine, 6,000 eBook chapters, 1,300 conference publications and a host of seminar digests.
IET director of knowledge, Tim Hamer, said: “Initial feedback from IET members has been so positive that we are now launching this new way of accessing content to the wider engineering community.
“Engineers have told us that they need easier access to the IET’s Digital Library content. Knowledge Packs are designed to do just that, not only for our members but also for the wider engineering and technology community. They deliver bite-sized digital content on key topics – making our world-leading engineering and technology content even more accessible.”
Phil Barber, technical specialist for vehicle capability research at Jaguar and Land Rover Research said: “I found the 'Knowledge Pack' very handy. I found several interesting articles and downloaded them. Subsequently we found two key books relating to the work we are doing and have purchased both”.
