The ASCE Research Library is a comprehensive online
tool for locating articles of interest across all disciplines of
civil engineering. The Research Library provides you with
unprecedented access to more than 18,500 full-text papers from ASCE
Journals and Proceedings published - that's over 175,000 pages!
Approximately 4,000 new papers will be added each year.
Access and Usage
A Research Library subscription is not required to
use the search and browse features or to view tables of contents and
abstracts. Downloading full-text digital papers is available only to
Research Library or online journal subscribers. Individuals should purchase an ASCE Research
Library Card; subscription information is also available for Institutions.
Personal subscribers gain access
to full-text papers via a username and password. Download activity
is recorded and tracked in the My Research Library Card account page, which may
be viewed anytime after establishing a login session. This account
page also serves as a personal archive (this page is not available
to institutional subscribers).
Institutional subscribers gain
access to the Research Library via their organization's IP addresses
and may use the archive in a manner consistent with their institutional online user agreement.
