Introduction

Materials and Manufacturing Technology (MMT) is concerned with the generation and application of knowledge relating the composition and processing of materials to their properties and applications, as well as the manufacturing technologies needed for production.  Includes a very multidisciplinary approach, by establishing strong relationships with Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical & Computer Engineering to refine processing to achieve the most sophisticated engineering design.

Evaluating Information

When using Online or Internet Resources, consider Search Engines vs. metasites - evaluate resource - consider domain - .edu, .com, .gov, .org, etc.

Thinking Critically about World Wide Web Resources - http://www.library.ucla.edu/libraries/college/help/critical/index.htm

  1. Authority control - authorship - who, affiliation, where
  2. Currency - note the date, the update, does it reflect the right period of time
  3. Evaluate the source - establish criteria that is meaningful to covering the topic
  4. Citing Internet resources - URL & date of the search
  5. Capturing and citing
  6. Copying

Library Buildings & Hours

You are likely to probably depend on the Science Library (SL) for most of your needs in the life sciences, physical sciences, information sciences, engineering & technology, clinical and health sciences  and to a lesser extent on the Langson Library (LL) for resources in business/management, social & behavioral sciences, arts, letters & literature, Government Information, however you may on occasion have to use the and perhaps the Grunigen Medical Library (GML) for clinical and other medical resources, but you can request that those materials either be scanned (journal articles) or sent to the Main Campus for your pickup.  There is also the Gateway Study Center for all-night studying.  Consult Library Hours before visiting.
