Informit Collections Content
Informit Collections aggregates content from a wide range of sources. The majority of scholarly and research information produced in Australasia is published by a myriad of small academic and professional associations, interest groups and research centres. Many of these organisations publish only one journal but each is a vital contributor to knowledge in their field of expertise.
Informit partners with those organisations to provide a collection of Australasian research online via one interface; in doing this, we enhance the resources by indexing them (down to article, chapter or paper level) and provide that index free to users.
**Engineering Collection is available via subscription on Informit, visit: http://www.informit.org. You can also contact Informit directly on: (03) 9925 8210 or firstname.lastname@example.org.**
