Engineering EBooks from IET

JPL Library recently added more than 400 electronic books from The Institute of Engineering and Technology, the major engineering and technology professional society from the Great Britain.

JPL Library has purchased books published between 2009 and 2014.  These are also indicated with a purple opened lock to indicate availability.  Older (pre-2009) books may be available as print copies, check the BEACON catalog to see if we have a copy available. The major topics are listed below; selected titles for each category are listed, or click on each link to access a list of books on that topic.

All ebooks can be accessed and downloaded from within the JPL network. They can then be transferred to mobile devices for later reading. Our license with the publishers specifies that ebooks are for individual use, and they cannot be re-distributed to others. If you would like to recommend certain books to your colleagues, please ask them to access their own copy.

Library staff can provide customized lists by topics.  All books can be searched and downloaded from within the JPL network. They can then be transferred to mobile devices for later reading.  For more questions, contact the Library Reference Desk at Library@jpl.nasa.gov, or call ext 4-4200.

 

Ebooks on Robotics: Overviews

The JPL Library has a good collection of electronic books on robotics.  In this post, we have listed selected titles with links to two categories within the Robotics: general overviews and social aspects.  All ebooks can be accessed and downloaded from within the JPL network. They can then be transferred to mobile devices for later reading. Our license with the publishers specifies that ebooks are for individual use, and they cannot be re-distributed to others. If you would like to recommend certain books to your colleagues, please ask them to access their own copy.
