Objectives: The collection is designed to support the teaching and research needs of engineering offered at the Claremont Colleges.
The undergraduate curriculum in engineering is offered at Harvey Mudd College.
Subjects and collecting levels: Subjects to be collected in engineering and engineering/technology management shall include: electrical and electronic, chemical, civil, mechanical, systems, and general engineering. In addition, coverage should also include areas impacted by the application of engineering design principles: material science, biomedical instrumentation, computer architecture, architecture and construction technology, project management and business management of high technology. Therefore, the engineering collection shall include inter-disciplinary coverage. Collection level is at the research level.
Types of materials collected: The collection shall consist of electronic databases, journals, monographs, serials, data books, study guides, and reference manuals.
Languages: Major emphasis is on English language materials.
Geographical emphasis: Materials reflect scholarship worldwide.
Chronological limits: Emphasis is on contemporary materials, though some historical material may also be collected.
