Integrating Information into the Engineering Design Process book cover

The first in a new series, the book Integrating Information into the Engineering Design Process edited by Michael Fosmire and David Radcliffe is now available. Michael Fosmire is Head of the Physical Sciences, Engineering, and Technology Division of the Purdue University Libraries and Professor of Library Science while David Radcliffe is Kamyar Haghighi Head of the School of Engineering Education and Professor of Engineering Education. Their collaboration focuses on the practical ways in which library and information science principles can be embedded into the pedagogy of another discipline to power student success. Sharon Weiner, W. Wayne Booker Chair in Information Literacy and series editor of the Purdue Information Literacy Handbooks series, notes that the book is “an outstanding example of the application of information literacy in a discipline. No other work has so thoroughly and capably integrated information literacy with the learning of engineering design. The authors and editors have succeeded in presenting a cohesive and evidence-based approach to an engineering paradigm; the design process.” More information about the book can be found on Purdue University Press’s website.
