Innovative Ideas Start with Compendex

by Louisa Verma on 2021-10-12T08:16:00-07:00 in PCA EXECUTIVE REPORT, DATABASES | Comments

Paul Sloane’s 21 Great Ways to Innovate blog post summarizes ideas to get the innovation juices flowing. Many of these “innovative ways to innovate” can be jumpstarted through a search of the engineering literature. As part of your membership*, the PCA Library offers access to the Engineering Village platform’s EI Compendex literature database. Besides scholarly journal articles, Compendex also provides discovery for:

  • standards
  • conference proceedings and papers
  • books and book chapters, and
  • dissertations

*Please note: Compendex access is limited to PCA committee members, PCA Board members and PCA Staff only, at that this time.
