Finding Peer-Reviewed Articles and Conference Proceedings

You can find engineering articles and interdisciplinary science articles in several of these databases. Some of the databases have search tools specific to engineering. 

You can use these databases to find: 

  • Journals and articles
  • Conference Proceedings 

You can request items the library does not have through this link to Resource Sharing. 

Conference proceedings can be found through this link to Primo, Seattle University's main catalog. When searching for conference proceedings, search for unique words from the conference title as a keyword search. Conference proceedings are sometimes cataloged like a book or sometimes cataloged like a journal, so they can be tricky to find. 


Theses and dissertations are works written by graduate students. They can be very useful for finding other sources of information. 

Finding Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed Articles

You can find articles on engineering topics and interdisciplinary science topics in several of these databases. Many of these databases have search tools that are specific to engineering or other science or technology subjects.
