The Institution’s E-library was launched in June this year, for the first time offering members worldwide a Library service regardless of their location or the time of day. The intention in the first year was to build up a collection of titles that any structural engineer might expect to have in their own library. Our aim is to cater for all members’ needs, whether they be preparing for the Chartered Membership Examination or further on in their career and undertaking more detailed design and analysis work.

So, what exactly can members expect to find in the E-library? The collection consists entirely of textbooks – rather than report-type publications such as those published by BRE, CIRIA, The Concrete Society, SCI, TRADA, etc. – and does not include standards or any of the Institution’s own suite of publications, which can now also be purchased as PDFs from the Institution bookshop.

The initial collection consists of over 90 titles and is growing continuously, with suggestions from members welcomed.
