A summary of the books in EPI's library

NOTE: Our entire library is ORGANIC, GLUTEN-FREE, CONTAIN NO GMO's, and will not upset anyone's precious FEELINGS or delicate SENSIBILITIES.

It has been stated by various experts that one of the primary goals of an engineering education is to make the student familiar with where to find the analysis and solutions of various problems, most of which have already been done by someone else.

We think it is an invaluable resource to have ready access to textbooks which are recognized as authoritative in specific fields. This section lists most of the contents of the EPI Reference Library, which is regularly being expanded.

The Section Labels below are an attempt to classify the works into their primary category. However, in many cases, there is considerable overlap in subject matter.

Instructions for Finding a Reference

Throughout this website, references to works in this library are quoted when appropriate. References in the text are shown as: (ref - Library Section Number : Book Number : Page Range).

For example, the notation (ref-5:15:3/23-3/26) refers to Library Section 5 {Engines and Turbomachinery}, Book 15 {TPE-331 Engine and Systems}, Pages 3-23 through 3-26.
