Knovel is a major collection of useful e-books in science and engineering.  Many of the e-books are amazingly interactive.  Carnegie Mellon users can access Knovel via the “Articles & Databases”  page on the library web site – just look for Knovel under the letter “K” in the “Databases A-Z” listing.  See:


Helpful Magnetic Resonance Web Site

One very helpful web site gathers information on useful Internet web sites.  It's
known as the Scout Report and it often covers science resources.  The current issue
covered a web site that may be of interest to you:

Magnetic Resonance Online Texts

This well-organized and very thorough website was developed by the physicist
Stanislav Sykora with the aim of providing free online texts, theses, and
course materials on the subjects of magnetic resonance (MR), magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear-magnetic resonance (NMR) and other related
topics. The amount of material on the site is impressive. At the top of the
page are links to an "MR Blog", as well as to "MR Links" and the "Site Plan
& SEARCH".  The NMR/MRI Extras section on the right side of the page is
particularly useful for visitors interested in all things about MR. Its
links to "Events" provides an up-to-date list of symposia, conferences, and
meetings, along with links to the events' sites.  The "Societies" link
offers at least 50 groups about MR, some of which are country-based, and
others that are region- or application-based. [KMG]
