Elsevier’s ‘Referex’ Engineering E-Books Database Adds 300 New Titles


New York, N.Y. – Engineering Village, an Elsevier online search platform that houses a comprehensive variety of databases designed for engineers, announced today the addition of over 300 new titles from both Elsevier imprints and William Andrew Publishers to its Referex engineering-focused e-books database.

Referex is a full-text professional e-reference database on the Engineering Village platform comprised of 1,900 top engineering titles across 6 engineering subject disciplines. The addition of William Andrew Publishers titles represents the first time Referex is featuring content from a third-party publisher. Strong in the core engineering disciplines, William Andrew Publishers books were chosen to enhance the data-rich reference handbooks in demand by Referex users.

“The addition of William Andrew Publishers content, coupled with the new 2008 Elsevier titles give Referex greater comprehensiveness in the core engineering disciplines, while maintaining our high standard of editorial integrity,” said Colby Ellis, CEO of Elsevier’s Engineering Information business unit. “By expanding to include third party content, Referex will continue to deliver excellent value to Engineering Village users by being the single source to the most authoritative and complete engineering information.”

Elsevier professional reference titles in Referex are drawn from its Science and Technology books publishing program featuring leading imprints including Pergamon, Newnes, Butterworth Heinemann, Morgan Kaufmann, and Syngress.
