Essential Knowledge Series
The Essential Knowledge Series
breaks down the key fundamentals of structural engineering into concise, accessible study texts, covering the core principles of structural design, analysis and mechanics. They're an invaluable resource for engineering students around the world.
All texts are free for Student Members and Academic Members. Other member grades can buy the texts for £9 each. Non-members can buy the texts for £19 each.

Technical Guidance Notes
The Technical Guidance Notes form the foundation of a structural engineering technical library. Written with recent graduates in mind, they also serve as useful 'refreshers' for more experienced engineers.
Level 1 notes provide the basis from which design skills can be developed (focusing on structural engineering core concepts) while Level 2 notes deal with more complex topics; typically the design of elements.
Members can access the Notes for free from The Structural Engineer Article Series
Non-members can buy the Notes from the Institution Bookshop
Most members have access to the library and e-library. The collection ranges from current research to material dating back to the 18th century.
