When searching in DELCAT Discovery, subject headings in your results can be very helpful in focusing a search. Below are a few examples of subject headings in the field of chemical engineering:

  • Petroleum Refining
  • Petroleum refineries -- United States -- Waster disposal -- Standards
  • Chemical process control -- Simulation methods
  • Distillation apparatus -- Design and construction
  • Polymers -- Additives -- Spectra
  • Fourier transformation

Note that subject headings often have several additional qualifying subject headings, allowing for very specific description of what a title is about.

Finding Books in the Library

The UD Library uses the Library of Congress Classification System to arrange books and print journals on the shelves. This system uses letters and numbers to complete the Call Number. A call number is like an address: it tells us where the book is located in the library.
Books and journals on chemical engineering are located in the TP call number area on the lower level of Morris Library.  The following guide may help you browse in this area.
