Deliver Your News to the World

The Hidden Web at your fingertips, for engineering, mathematics and computing


EEVL Xtra is a brand new, free service which can help you find articles, books, the best websites, the latest industry news, job announcements, technical reports, technical data, full text eprints, the latest research, teaching and learning resources and more, in engineering, mathematics and computing.

EEVL Xtra is for anyone looking for information in engineering, mathematics and computing. Academics, researchers, students, lecturers, practicing professionals and anyone else looking for information in these subjects should find it useful.

EEVL Xtra cross-searches (hence the ‘X’ in Xtra) over 20 different collections relevant to engineering, mathematics and computing, including content from over 50 publishers and providers. It doesn’t just point you to these databases, but rather it ‘deep mines’ them, so you can search them direct from EEVL Xtra. Databases searched include: arXiv, ePrints UK, CISTI, CiteSeer, CSA Hot Topics, Copac, Euclid Mathematics and Statistics Journals, Inderscience Journals IoP Journals, NACA Technical Reports, NASA TEchnical Reports, OneStep Industry News, OneStep Jobs, Pearson Education, Recent Advances in Manufacturing, zetoc, EEVL Best of the Web, EEVL Ejournal Search Engine, and more.

EEVL Xtra helps you find subject-based information.. Many of the things you’ll find through EEVL Xtra come from the ‘Hidden Web’, and are not indexed by search engines.

In many cases, the full text of items found via EEVL Xtra should be freely available. In some cases, the full items are details of books, websites or articles. In some cases, the full text of items may be available to you if your institution subscribes to the publication.

It may sound complicated, but EEVL Xtra is actually very easy to use!
