What are engineering handbooks?

Handbooks condense, often into one volume, an enormous amount of information on a given field of knowledge. In addition to descriptive text, handbooks include definitions, formulas, diagrams, and bibliographic references to more comprehensive information sources. There are several current engineering handbooks in the Reference Collection on the 1st floor and in the Circulating Collection on the 3rd floor, as well as some available online.
