The library does not currently subscribe to a database specific to the field of engineering, but it does provide access to a science and technology database that includes materials related to the field. In addition, there are cross-disciplinary databases that include citations to articles about engineering, many of which are full text.
Books at the COC Library are shelved by Library of Congress Classification. In this system, books on engineering are mostly found with call numbers beginning with the letters TA, TC, TD, TE, TF, TG, TJ, TK, and TN. The library's eBook collections contain additional titles that pertain to engineering.
