Common Libraries for Networed Engineering Applications



R Tuttle, Mike Pratt, William Regli, G Little, D Clark, J Corney


The Internet has become a huge electronic library of information resources. From this vast source of information, knowledge can be extracted and manipulated. Engineering information should, therefore, also be available via this electronic resource. Several Scottish academic establishments have compiled servers specially dedicated to the distribution of Engineering information, a sample of these systems is documented. Further discussion involving the use of a specific common library/repository for Engineers as a catalyst for both present and forthcoming Internet collaboration is also given. Ideas and suggestions on probable future use of the Internet in respect of common networked Engineering applications is highlighted.
