We are pleased to inform that Elsevier’s Knovel trial has been set up for the University Philippines Diliman – College of Engineering. The trial can be accessed via

“Knovel integrates information and data from more than 100 engineering societies and publishers and makes it searchable and interactive so that Engineers can easily manipulate the data they find and use it in other engineering applications. Try their “Equations in Engineering Practice” which provides practical solutions to solving equations. Retrieve data from their interactive graphs, equations and tables by dragging and dropping properties into query builder. Knovel provides a web-based application that integrates technical information with analytical and search tools to deliver a comprehensive and better integrated solution for faculty and engineering students.”

Consider using Knovel to…

-solve a design problem
-look up a formula
-find a new material
-compare properties of substances
-improve processes
-validate assumptions & equipment
-spec out project plans
-get up to speed on a new area

Please go to our Knovel trial page {} to learn how Knovel can help and then use the product for yourself. Upon entering, please register as a trial participant. After registering you will receive an email to activate your new profile.

Knovel has also provided pre-recorded Introduction to Knovel sessions to help you get started. The session will provide tips on how to navigate and search Knovel, a demonstration of the Interactive Tools that help you use and apply data, and a quick how-to save and organize useful information with My Knovel. You can view all the demonstrations here {}.

The trial period starts 15 May 2014 through 31 May 2014.
