Welcome to the BIOE 575 LibGuide.
These are just a few of the available databases and resources you should try searching when starting your research on engineering, STEM, medicine, and healthcare topics. You will need to become familiar with research literature, standards, patents, and other technical information.

Standards are documented agreements containing technical specifications or other precise criteria to be used consistently as rules, guidelines, or definitions of characteristics, to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose.
While most standards are not available for purchase by libraries in electronic format, the Grainger Engineering Library holds a large collection of print standards, Standards are not in the library catalog, to determine if the library owns a standard, email your librarian, Alex Cabada (firstname.lastname@example.org). Purchasing standards can take up to 2-3 weeks, so notify your librarian well in advance if you may need the library to make a purchase.
Technical reports describe the process, progress, or results of technical or scientific research. Technical reports, often derived from government funded research, are a good source of technical information when developing a new invention or design.
