With thousands of new websites going online daily, searching for the information you need can be a nightmare conglomeration of "miss-hits." Because Design News understands that design engineers need information now, we did the searching for you and built a better search engine. Search Engineer scopes out more than 3,000 sites, including OEM manufacturers, associations, consultants, publications, government agencies, and more. How did we come up with this database of sites? Design News editors reviewed more than 10,000 sites. A site had to meet at least four out of 15 criteria of interest to design engineers, including CAD drawings, product spec sheets, technical papers, online catalogs, etc. In addition, Search Engineer will be updated on a monthly basis with sites suggested by our readers, advertisers, and our own editorial staff.
We encourage you to try out Search Engineer online at www.designnews.com.
