The IEEE Xplore digital library is a powerful resource for discovery of and access to scientific and technical content published by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and its publishing partners.
The Kettering University Library subscribes to the IEEE Electronic Library, which contains almost one-third of the world's current literature in electrical engineering, communications, and computer science. The most comprehensive and value-driven collection available through IEEE Xplore, IEL delivers innovative information and powerful research tools:
Global searching enables you to search the IEEE Xplore database for one or more keywords in any field. Use advanced searching if you want to do a full-text search; limit your search to certain fields; limit your search by publisher, content type, topic, or year; or combine keywords using operators (AND, OR, NOT).
Use the global search box near the top center of IEEE Xplore to begin your search.
1. Enter one or more keywords in the Global Search box. IEEE Xplore has a type-ahead feature that suggests keywords and phrases using values from the document title, publication title, topic, and index terms fields. Type-ahead is initiated after three characters are entered. If you see the search query you want, select it in the pop-up box. Note: Three characters must be entered for the type-ahead feature to activate.
