Getting Started Print Page


Howdy! This guide was developed to assist you with locating resources for CHEN425. Additional chemical engineering resources can be found on the Chemical Engineering Guide.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or need assistance finding other information.

Relevant Books

The following books are listed on your CHEN 425 syllabus. Some are available online and some are print. NOTE (9/24/14): Due to renovations on the 3rd Floor of Evans Library some of the print titles listed are not immediately available, but can be requested at the front desk and we'll retreive it for you..

If a print copy is checked out, you can request another through the library's Get It For Me. Takes about a week for the books to arrive from off-campus.

Chemical Engineering Plant Cost Index (CEPCI)

Chemical Engineering, a trade magazine for chemical engineers, contains the Chemical Engineering Plant Cost Index (CEPCI) and other business indicators. The magazine can be accessed online through one of the library's databases; however, a few issues may not have the page containing the CEPCI and other indicators you need. If that occurs, you'll need to consult the print version. 

Here is a Flash video showing how to access the CEPCI and other indicators online using the January 2011 issue of Chemical Engineering as an example. I've also described the process below in case you are unable to play the Flash video. After clicking on Chemical Engineering (Online) below, select EBSCOhost Academic Search Complete. Once Academic Search Complete loads, click the "+" sign next to the year along the right side. Then select the month/issue. After you locate the issue/month, go to the very last last few pages of that issue. The 1-page section you need is titled "Economic Indicators." You can right click on the PDF to save or print that page.

If you are unable to locate the page you need online, then consult the print in Evans Library. The "Economic Indicators" section is on the last few pages of each issue. Current issues of the print , including those for 2012 and 2013, are located in the Current Periodicals area on the 1st Floor of Evans Library in the reading Room under TN1.M45. Older issues of Chemical Engineering (i.e., 2009 and older) are on the 3rd Floor also under TN1.M45

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any problems accessing or locating want you need.

NOTE: Beginning May 2012, the Marshall & Swift Equipment Index is no longer available in Chemical Engineering and there are no other sources for that index. Older values for Marshall & Swift can be found in issues prior to May 2012.
