History of the Engineering Societies Library and Collection

"The United Engineering Foundation Inc. (UEF) is the successor organization to the United Engineering Society (UES) which was founded in 1904 with the generous support of Andrew Carnegie. The members of the UEF are the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), American Institute of Mining Engineers (AIME), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). " - from the UES web site. 

In 1995, the Engineering Societies Library (ESL) was transferred to Linda Hall Library.  This collection included many published works, the majority of which can be found by searching our catalog.  The collection included a large number of individual papers from the societies' member organizations, as well as several additional engineering societies.  This papers collection is not currently represented in our catalog but can be accessed using our Reference and Document Services.  Summaries of these holdings as well as those from several other collections are provided in this guide.
