ECH/EMS 200 - Chemical Engineering/Materials Science Engineering

Find Books in the UC Davis Library Collections

Search for print and ebooks:

Searching in a library catalog requires looking for broader topics such as catalysis engineering or lignocellulosic fiber composites rather than the more specific metal-catalysed hydrogenation of CO2 into methanol or structure of oxidized lignocellulosic fiber composites.

PLEASE NOTE:   Shields Library is now the only UCD Library building left on the UCD campus and now includes ALL sciences print collections except clinical medicine.  

With the permanent closure of the Physical Sciences and Engineering Library during COVID time, all chemical engineering/materials science print books and other materials have been re-located to four locations:  Shields Library sciences 3rd floor;  Shields Library 2nd floor Reference collection (REFERENCE titles); temporary storage (at the former Carlson Health Sciences Library); or the Northern UC libraries storage facility, NRLF (Northern Regional Library Facility).    The UCD Library Catalog notes which of these four locations your print materials science publications may be found at.  

The Carlson Health Sciences Library permanently closed in June 2022 and print-only materials in that collection which overlap with engineering areas will be transferred to either Shields Library or to the NRLF.   Any materials located still at the former Carlson Health Sciences Library will have the location note of TEMPORARY STORAGE.
