Library has listed some of the identified WEB-SITES pertaining to the Deparments of: Architecture, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Instrumentation Technology, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Physics and some sites pertaining to Language Learning and Quotations.
These websites will provide you listing of their Publications, Membership, however you have free access to their Publications Upto Abstract level only.
Department Of Architecture
This site is from Massachchussets Institute of Technology, USA. It contains the Digital Images of some of the Antiquarian Buildings of Architectural importance that are situated in the Campus.
Department Of Chemical Engineering
This Site is of American Institute of Chemical Engineers and provides access to their Publications, under each publication you can search by Author, Subject and Title and also search all the Institute Journals and other Publications, for a particular Chemical Engineering subject. You have free access to this SITE upto Abstracts level.
Department Of Chemistry
The SITE is of one of the premier Learned Society, American Chemical Society, the Publishers of "CHEMICAL ABSTRACTS" since 1907. This SITE is for the entire publication range of American Chemical Society, including the Chemical Abstracts.
Department Of Civil Engineering
In the Branch of Civil Engineering, the most important orgnisation is the American Society of Civil Engineers which was established in 1852. Thus it is one of the Learned Society in existence for more than 150 Years. Its membership 130000 throughout the Globe. It is Publishing 30 Journals in all Branches of Civil Engineering and this Site provides access to all the Journals and the other Publications of ASCE. It has developed a Civil Engineering Database of 100000 Records since 1970.
Department Of Computer Science and Engineering
The number of websites in this Branch of Engineering are many, but in this page we have selected three of the most Prolific examples: IEEE, IEE, ACM. The IEEE and ACM has a Digital Library Access IEEExplore and ACM Digital Library, which will enable you to Access to all their Publications; Periodicals, ACM Special Interest Groups (40 in Number) Standards and Conference Proceedings. IEE is offered by INSPEC in addition to Computer Science it also includes, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Electronics, Control and Communication Engineering and Information Technology.
Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering
Again the Number of Sites in Electrical and Electronics Engineering are many.We have selected the two very fabulous, the IEEE and IEE. The latter again is a joint programme of IEEE, IEE, AIP, Physical Society and is now RUN as INSPEC Information System in the field of Physics, Electrical and Electronics, Computer and Control Engineering. The beginning of IEE and its publications is traced back to 1896 when Science Abstracts was started in UK. Today as a Joint programme it is considered as one of the world's largest Electronic Database in the field.It is also availble through number of Journal Aggregators like Proquest. It is a Journal Content Service and has no Publications of its own like the IEEE. IEEE as a matter fact is from USA publishes as many as 66 Journals, Transactions and Magazines of repute.Besides it has also good number of Standards of its own, and number of Conference Proceedings. To give full complement of its publications and services is not possible to give in short here, hence users are advised to CLICK on to the SITE and to have a tour of the Site.
Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering
The Description is this case same as above as the two SITES also deal all subjects and branches.
Department Of Industrial Engineering Management
Department of Information Science
Department of Instrumentation Technology
The ISA - Instrumentation, Systems and Automation Society of America was founded in the year 1945. Its present Membership is aroung 38000 members. It is a major Learned Society in the field of Automation + Control and serves for the professional needs of accreditation of related systems in the Instrumentation field. It disseminates knowledge of Automation and Control by the means of technical training and respectful publications: Books, Journals and Standards. In addition to this specific subject site we have also Identified, related sites in the field such as; IEEE and so on.
Department Of Mathematics
Department of Mechanical Engineering
There are two International Institutions of repute. They are American Society for Mechnical Engineers(ASME) and Institute of Mechanical Engineers of UK (IMechE).The ASME was founded in 1880 and is today has expanded its activities internationally with a membership of 125,000 members.

In this we have listed such sites. The site of the Indian Academy of Sciences provides for free access to the FULL TEXT of articles of all their Journals.
Language Learning
In the Universities of many western countries and in some in the East, the establishment of a Language Laboratory has become a necessity. The Number of Language Laboratories are growing in number in USA. Today the language laboratory in a University or in an Institution of higher learning has become a justifiable necessity. Advances in Educational Technology and in Information Technology have made major transformation and now equipped with a networked computers,hooked to INTERNET and E-mails and obviously the Software and Websites pertaining to Language Learning are growing number.
