Since its launch six years ago, McGraw-Hill’s AccessEngineering has served an enthusiastic and growing community of engineering faculty, students, and professionals with on-demand access to digital editions of classic references, including Perry’s Handbook for Chemical Engineers, Marks’ Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers, and Roark’s Formulas for Stress and Strain–many enhanced with interactive tables and graphs; instructional videos and animations depicting core engineering concepts; and other multi-media.

AccessEngineering continues its evolution as the premier online engineering resource with the the launch of its new platform that features technological and user interface improvements that raise the bar for learning and accessibility of engineering content. Among the many enhancements are a completely new user interface, providing users with faster, more accurate and more relevant searches; improved navigation; and a curated aggregation of up to the minute global engineering news.

Says Philip Ruppel, president of McGraw-Hill Professional, developers of the Access suite of online subscription products, “When you serve the engineering community, it’s not enough to just keep pace with the field’s growing body of content and advancements in technology. You have to be out in front, which is why we are continuously enhancing and improving AccessEngineering and our entire line of Access products.” Developed in partnership with Semantico, a leading digital publishing solutions company, AccessEngineering will continually grow to meet the needs of this user community. Among the significant enhancements due to roll out in the first half of 2o12 are the introduction of a new subject category — Operations Management — that will include some of McGraw-Hill’s best-known reference works, such as The Six Sigma Handbook and Juran’s Quality Handbook. This category expansion will prove especially valuable to every engineer—across the broad range of engineering disciplines—tasked with innovation through continuous improvement of production processes. Also debuting in the coming months is a new suite of personalization tools that allow students, faculty, and engineers to further integrate AccessEngineering content into their workflows.
