The Engineering Division provides many avenues of communication for its members. On this page, we present four of them:
- Engineering Division Discussion List
- Aerospace Section Discussion List
- The Sci-Tech News Newsletter
- The Engineering Division Wiki
SLA-DENG is the electronic discussion list for the Engineering Division of the Special Libraries Association (SLA). The purpose of SLA-DENG is to promote communication among the members of the Engineering Division of SLA and other interested parties within SLA and beyond. As such, it should help special librarians everywhere advance their role as information professionals in their respective institutions.
SLA-DENG is hosted by the Special Libraries Association. The list is managed by Bob Tolliver at Pennsylvania State University, who may be contacted with any questions or problems (firstname.lastname@example.org).
At this time SLA-DENG is unmoderated. Messages posted to the list are delivered to CURRENT subscribers only.
