Special Instructions

Our subscription does not include all of the titles in Knovel; if there is a padlock icon next to a title, that means we do not have access to that book in Knovel. Check the UB Libraries Catalog to see if we have the book in print or possibly in a digital format on another platform.


Knovel provides full-text access to an online collection of over a thousand science and engineering reference books. Many of the books are enhanced with features such as interactive tables that allow you to manipulate and customize the data as you would in a spreadsheet application. In addition, certain books also feature interactive graphs, equation plotters, and graph plotters.

Subject coverage includes: adhesives, aerospace technologies, biochemistry, biology, biotechnology, ceramics, chemistry, chemical engineering, construction materials and engineering, electrical and power engineering, environmental engineering, food science, mechanics and mechanical engineering, metals and metallurgy, pharmaceuticals, plastics and rubbers, safety, health and hygiene, and semiconductors and electronics.
