The Spectra Engineering and Science Research Journal is now searching for UVa undergraduates to submit their research for publication. Any student may submit. Successful papers will portray a variety of criteria such as originality, depth of technical analysis, diversity, intellectual insight, and transformative research. Paper submissions are open to any discipline provided a faculty member approves the document based on technical accuracy. For more information visit The Spectra web page.
Best Databases for Civil & Environmental Engineering
Environmental Impact Statements
Northwestern University's Transportation Library has one of the largest collections of environmental impact statements in North America. Their catalog records are brief, so they are best searched by keywords (which always must include the keyword "EIS"). Once you have identified the EIS you want, check VIRGO to see if it is available at UVa; if not, then use interlibrary loan to request the item.
