Engineering Village consists of three bibliographic databases, GEOBASE, GeoRef and Compendex. GEOBASE is a multidisciplinary database of bibliographic information and abstracts that indexes journal literature across the earth sciences including geology, human and physical geography, environmental sciences, oceanography and geomechanics from 1980-present. GeoRef covers geological literature from North America (1785-present), plus geological literature from the rest of the world (1933-present).

Compendex is the most comprehensive bibliographic database of scientific and technical engineering and computing research available. This may be of use to GIS students.
