Databases by Subject

Library databases contain information from multiple sources.  These sources include scholarly journals, newspapers, conference papers, and magazines.  Databases are web-based and accessible through the library's website. Accessing from off-campus?



Google & Google Scholar are useful, but library databases are consistently more reliable and efficient.


  1. Databases are more likely to contain the full text of articles.
    - If you find an article through Google, you will most likely be asked to pay for it
  2. Databases have advanced search features.
    - You can choose to search only for scholarly sources
    - You can limit your search to a specific time period, author, publication, or subject terms
  3. Databases are either discipline-specific or multidisciplinary.
    For example, if you're searching for articles about economics & finance, you can search in specialized databases for that subject area.  Or, you can search in a database that covers many different academic subjects, from engineering to science to history to business.

2008 Survey Results

As part of our role to provide support for the research activities carried out by the Institute, the library staff and the members of the Library Committee conducted an online resource survey in January 2008 designed to assess the research needs of the faculty and researchers.

We hope that the survey results will help the Library staff and the Provost formulate a sustainable plan for the acquisition and maintenance of the core and supporting resources.

In the survey, we asked faculty and researchers about the resources the library currently provides and about what other resources are needed to support their research. A great number of faculty and researchers expressed the need for the acquisition of the Web of Science and the ACS journal package.

The survey is available in two pdf documents:

Print Book Collection Development Policy of the Samuel C. Williams Library

Revised January 2014

Mission and audience


The Samuel C. Williams Library is the center for information discovery and preservation at Stevens Institute of Technology. Its staff are dedicated to fostering an innovative environment with technology, education and culture. It is our goal to create a distinctive library experience through services and resources that promote information and media literacy, knowledge creation, global scholarly communication, and critical and creative thinking for our students, faculty, and researchers around the world.

To support this mission, the print book collection development policy of the Samuel C. Williams Library is designed to give the Stevens community guidelines for maintaining monograph resources that support the teaching and research needs of the institute. Maintenance of the library collection includes both the acquisition and removal of items according to their merits as resources that support current research and academic programs or their value in relation to the history of the institute, the Stevens family, or the community of Hoboken. 


History and current state of the collection

The Stevens library began in the late 1800s as a makeshift collection of books and journals housed in the Edwin A. Stevens building. In 1920, the collection was moved to a dedicated space on the second floor of the Lieb building, and in 1969, the collection was moved to its current location in the Samuel C. Williams Library building. The initial focus of the collection was on technical journals aimed at supporting the undergraduate mechanical engineering students. The subject matter of these journals covered a range of technological subjects outside of mechanical engineering. The focus of the collection moved away from journals in the 1980s and 1990s when, faced with large budget cuts, the library cancelled most of its print journal subscriptions and used the serials budget to purchase copies of requested articles via document delivery. The Internet has improved accessibility to journal articles, and the library’s decision to cancel print journals has put it in a good position to use its physical space in combination with the World Wide Web to provide a broad range of book, journal and database resources that support Stevens in its teaching and research missions. In lieu of maintaining a collection of print journals, the library focuses its collection efforts on the acquisition of supporting monograph material, including textbooks, supplementary course material, or other primary sources that are considered essential background reading for the disciplines taught at Stevens.

Currency of material and ease of access to that material are the primary factors in maintaining the collection. Preservation is a secondary factor. Excepting our special collections, the Stevens library is not an archival library, and it does not retain material for which there is no longer a demand from the community.

In addition to the resources available to all the community, the Samuel C. Williams Library also houses a number of special collections, including the Frederick Winslow Taylor papers on scientific management, the Stevens Institute archives, the Lieb collection of books relating to Leonardo da Vinci, numerous items of the Stevens family, as well copies of masters and doctoral dissertations and senior reports produced by Stevens students.

General collection policies

The Acquisitions and Collection Development Department oversees the library’s circulating and reference material. This department is responsible for ordering, cataloging and weeding of material; however, the library does not have subject specialists on staff, and the Stevens faculty are responsible for ensuring that the collection stays current in regard to the research and teaching of the Institute.

The library’s monograph collection policy gives preference to English-language material in print or electronic formats. Material in electronic format is purchased only if it is Web-based, i.e., not in CD-ROM or DVD format, and only if a site license is available. A separate e-book and non-serial electronic media collection policy outlines the library’s decision-making criteria for this material. Library acquisitions are meant to supplement research and teaching. In addition, acquisitions should support the research needs of the departments at large or of collective efforts among the departments, rather than the specific needs of one individual’s research. Also, the library collects material that aids the institute in its role as a supporter of student life and promoter of academic excellence.

Examples of material that meet collection requirements include supplementary course material, books authored by leaders and innovators in the fields of technology, science and management, and monograph series pertinent to the Institute’s research interests. Print volumes of journals and conference proceedings are given lower priority: the library licenses a number of databases that index these items, and the Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Services Department can quickly obtain copies of articles and papers that are not available online in the library databases. Lowest priority is given to general interest material, such as popular fiction, current event, and self-help titles. Students, faculty, and staff at the Institute are entitled to borrowing privileges at the Hoboken Public Library, which provides material of this kind. The library will not acquire self-published titles, vanity press editions or works of a scholarly nature that have not been peer-reviewed or professionally edited.

Print reference resources, including handbooks and encyclopedias, are purchased in electronic format whenever possible, given the fact that print reference is non-circulating and the school serves a large community of WebCampus and distance learning students.

Number of copies

With few exceptions, only single copies of print items are purchased. If circulation statistics indicate the need for extra copies of an item, the library will purchase these.

Special collection support

The library also obtains material that supports our special collections holdings. For example, material about United States industrial history supports our Taylor collection, and material on the history of railroads and nautical design supports our Stevens family and Hoboken collections. This material is placed in the circulating collection, and if it appears necessary, extra copies are purchased for storage in special collections. 


The library actively removes titles from the collection in order to keep the collection up-to-date, to facilitate the discovery of material that remains in demand, and to ensure a balance between shelf space and study space. The choice of materials to be withdrawn is determined by the professional staff. Among the criteria considered when removing books from the collection are the following:

Demand based on circulation statistics

Number of copies of the title held by the library

Condition of the material

Possession by the library of later editions of a title, especially in regard to introductory textbooks

Relevancy of the material to research, teaching or special collection interests of the institute

Number of copies held among New Jersey academic libraries, i.e., last copy status.


Gifts of new books that meet the criteria of the collection development policy are accepted. Bookplates are available for memorial or honorary gifts. If desired, the collection development librarian will help in the selection of an appropriate book to be given as a gift.

Donations of used books

The library is not currently accepting donations of used books.


Reference & Research


Librarians are available to answer your research questions in many ways:


A librarian will help you identify, retrieve, and use diverse information resources. Librarians teach research education classes & workshops and create web-based guides and tutorials to help you find reliable, high-quality information.

Reference Hours

Reference & Research Services Librarians are available from 9 AM to 6 PM on weekdays, with evening hours by appointment. The reference desk is located in the great hall of the library, along the west wall under the Safari mural, across from the library's main entrance.

Research Assistance

Librarians can meet with students, faculty, and staff individually or in groups to discuss your research questions and guide you to relevant resources. Please contact one of the librarians to arrange a meeting.

We will help you to identify the best resources for your research and help you become more familiar with search techniques for your specific topic.

Since most of our resources can be accessed remotely, librarians are available to visit faculty members' offices to discuss your research questions.

Library Research Education

Librarians teach both general library orientations and discipline-specific library research sessions.

Librarians provide library research education

  • in the classroom,
  • in the Library Research Training Room, or
  • online.

As of fall 2011, all first-year undergraduate students will engage in a library research education session during the CAL 103 course. In addition, all first-year undergraduate engineering students will participate in a library experience session as part of the E101/102 course.

To promote advanced library research education, we are happy to collaborate with faculty members to create a session tailored to the specific research needs of a course or department. So that the session is meaningful, non-redundant, and relevant to the students,

  • The faculty member will collaborate with the librarian to design an instruction session that meets the research needs of a specific assignment. The instruction session will be valuable only if it addresses a specific learning objective.
  • Faculty members are required to be present at the session so that the faculty member can see the sources shown and the issues discussed as well as demonstrate to the students that the faculty member values research skills and the outcome of the assignment, and that the instruction session is an integral part of the coursework.

To arrange a library session, please complete the online instruction request form.

Information Literacy

Through library research education and outreach to the Stevens community, librarians promote the critical evaluation and information literacy skills students need to be successful at Stevens and as members of an information- and media-rich society.

"Developing lifelong learners is central to the mission of higher education institutions. By ensuring that individuals have the intellectual abilities of reasoning and critical thinking, and by helping them construct a framework for learning how to learn, colleges and universities provide the foundation for continued growth throughout their careers, as well as in their roles as informed citizens and members of communities." Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, American Library Association, 2000.

"Information literacy forms the basis for lifelong learning. It is common to all disciplines, to all learning environments, and to all levels of education. It enables learners to master content and extend their investigations, become more self-directed, and assume greater control over their own learning.

"An information literate student:

  • Determines the nature and extent of information needed.
  • Accesses needed information effectively and efficiently.
  • Evaluates information and its sources critically and incorporates selected information into his or her knowledge base and value system.
  • Individually or as a member of a group, uses information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose.
  • Understands many of the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use of information and accesses and uses information ethically and legally."
    (Association of College & Research Libraries, Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, 2000)

Accreditation organizations like Middle States and ABET require university libraries to establish library research education programs that contribute to student lifelong learning skills, including those of information literacy and critical thinking. National attention has been called to the importance of information literacy, as the month of October has been proclaimed by the President of the United States "National Information Literacy Awareness Month."

The library's information literacy program addresses these goals and learning outcomes in detail with a focus on preparing students to excel when faced with future challenges and to understand the value of their contribution to society. If you would like to learn more about the information literacy program, please contact a librarian.
