Sources Full-text books; over 2,800 major science and technical reference books and databases from major Sci-tech publishers including John Wiley & Sons and Elsevier. This data is enhanced with time-saving analytical tools to help analyze and manipulate the data. Users can sort, filter and export data from 'live tables', resolve equations and plot graphs, capture values from existing graphs and perform 'what if' experiments on the data. Note: The Libraries have subscribed to much but not all of the sections and premium content offered in Knovel.
