Liaison Librarian for Engineering, Jay Bhatt, Authors Chapter in “Integrating Information into the Engineering Design Process”
Engineering design is a fundamental problem-solving model used by the discipline. Effective problem-solving requires the ability to find and incorporate quality information sources. To teach courses in this area effectively, educators need to understand the information needs of engineers and engineering students and their information gathering habits.
Integrating Information into the Engineering Design Process provides essential guidance for engineering faculty and librarians wishing to better integrate information competencies into their curricular offerings.
