It’s always newsworthy when 37 years of a publisher’s books become available online to MIT, especially if the content is central to much of our research and teaching.
The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) publishes books on topics critical to MIT’s research and teaching. Thanks to support from Lincoln Labs, MIT and Lincoln now have access to IET eBooks from 2016 on topics ranging from nano-scaled semiconductors to mechatronic hands. The addition of the 2016 titles means MIT now has online access to 37 years of IET books, from 1979 to 2016.
Formed by the March 2006 merger of the UK-based Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) and Institution of Incorporated Engineers (IIE), the scope of IET covers many fields related to electrical engineering: antennas, circuits, energy, radar, radio, robotics, sensors, signal processing, and transport reflect only some of vast sci/tech and engineering content included in the ebook archive. If you’re already familiar with the IET journals and conference proceedings, you’ll know these are available at MIT through the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The IET eBooks are available via the IET Digital Library platform.
