SAE International Launches Redesigned Digital Library

WARRENDALE, Pa., April 26, 2011 - SAE International is pleased to announce a complete redesign of its Digital Library, the comprehensive technical paper and standards solution relied upon by automobile and aerospace engineers for more than 10 years.

The newly redesigned Digital Library uses a sophisticated MarkLogic® server with an integrated taxonomy of industry-specific terms to give SAE customers and members unprecedented access to the more than 150,000 papers, standards, and related publications in the Digital Library—as well as the ability to quickly search, find, and share the information they need.

Additional improvements to the new Digital Library include a redesigned, user-friendly interface; a faster, more powerful search engine; multiple filters for quickly narrowing results; and collaborative tools for enhanced workflow. For example, researchers can now automatically download citations, share search results via email and social media tools, and use cross-reference terms to discover related content.

“One of the most important things to note about the Digital Library redesign is that it was done with direct input from our customers at various stages in the development process,” said Michael Thompson, SAE Manager of Electronic Publishing. “We wanted to make sure the end product reflected the real needs of our users.”

The new SAE Digital Library was designed to help researchers in both industry and academia. For corporations, the Digital Library is the complete, comprehensive resource for trusted mobility engineering information. Work on virtually every component of automotive, aerospace, and mechanical engineering is covered in the wide variety of technical papers and standards. On the academic side, full-reference listings and one-click citation downloads help researchers, professors, and students quickly access the technical information they need.
