Announcing online access to the full text of Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers (IEEE) journals back to 1998.
IEEE Xplore [ ] is a searchable
database which includes the 130+ journals published by the IEEE and IEE and
also their conference proceedings and the current edition of IEEE standards.
These publications are relevant to many disciplines including: electrical
engineering, computer science, electronics, spatial information science, and
sensors technology. Indexing extends back to 1988 for all journals and
conference proceedings and further back to 1950 for selected publications.

Full text of IEEE journal articles is available for 1998 to present. Full
text is not available through IEEE Xplore for the IEE journals or IEEE and
IEE conference proceedings and standards. Check URSUS to determine our
holdings of these publications. The database allows simple keyword and
phrase searching or complex search queries employing a variety of operators.
Tables of contents are available for browsing and there is also a useful
alerting service. Register to have an email alert sent of the table of
contents when a new issue is published. We have contracted for 5
simultaneous users. IEEE Xplore is available from the Indexes and Databases
page []. For more
information please contact Lois M. Nase, Science and Engineering Librarian 207-581-1678.
