ICE online archives
In January 2017, it was announced that the ICE archives would become available online for the first time. The upgrade has been launched to coincide with ICE's 200th anniversary and means that ICE members now have access to one of the biggest civil engineering knowledge libraries in the world.
The library upgrade, which has been twelve months in the planning, brings together ICE's vast book collections and extensive archives. Whilst ICE has made its library collection available online previously, those wanting access to the archives had been restricted to contacting ICE's library team and requesting information.
Further upgrades are planned to take place later in 2018 which will see ICE Publishing materials and Journals also added and the ICE image library digitised for the first time. The upgrade is part of an ongoing programme to improve the range of knowledge content available to members which will eventually include recorded lectures alongside ICE training and Benevolent Fund material.
"ICE is the home of civil engineering knowledge, and many thousands of members over the years have benefitted from access to our vast library of books, journals, drawings, maps and other engineering documents helping them with their studies and research. We have worked hard over the last year to extend that information by unlocking our archives for the very first time, making the contents, including more digital content, available with an easy to use search system.
The upgrade will go live on 17 January 2018.
