Key Ebook Collections at UCSD
Key UCSD ebook collections with chemical engineering titles. You can search for titles in Roger or search title/full-text at the publisher websites.
- If you search at the publisher websites, expect large sets of search results, due to the full-text book searching (and journals if applicable). Searches have to be more specific.
- Unless otherwise specified, we don't have access to all ebooks from a particular publisher. Check the catalog for a print copy, or request via Interlibrary Loan.
