SAE International Launches Next Offering of Global Technology Library - Alternative Fuels

WARRENDALE, Pa., April 4, 2013 - Packed with more than 3,100 technical papers, 60 technical standards and six e-Books, SAE International launches the “SAE Global Technology Library-Alternative Fuels.”

This unique, searchable, online database enables mobility engineering professionals to stay up-to-date and compete in a rapidly changing environment by accessing the most timely, relevant information related to alternative fuels.   The Library is the second in a series of new products developed by SAE International over the past year to address the changing needs of the industries we serve. The “SAE Global Technology Library-Electric Vehicle,” launched in June of 2012, covers the latest developments in vehicle electrification worldwide.

According to Michael Thompson, Manager of Electronic Publishing for SAE International, “The concept for the development of our global libraries was to offer our customers product options based on the specific needs of their company or their projects, by technology. In addition to SAE International content, we also include valuable content from other publishers made available through exclusive arrangements.” Thompson added, “The fact that our customers now have access to market leading content, information, data and research all in one location, saves them both time and money which is ultimately beneficial to the end user. At SAE International, we have our finger on the pulse of the industry and see these new product offerings as another way to offer valuable solutions to our customers.
