Get started on your research using the library catalog, journals, and various research databases. You can also search our subscription article databases from home or anywhere using our remote access!
Find books, technical reports, conference proceedings, AFIT Theses & Dissertations. Check your library account, renew books, and place holds. You may also use your AFIT library card at Wright State University and the University of Dayton!
Try the following research databases to locate the best articles on your research topic! If the article you find is not full-text, click on the 360 link to find the full-text. In some cases the article may not be available full-text, for further assistance contact a librarian or fill out an interlibrary loan request. You may also utlize our AFIT Summon and search multiple databases at once!
- Aerospace Database
This database provides indexing and abstracts from more than 4,000 current serial and non-serial titles, including content from AIAA and NASA. The database currently includes over 3.6M records from periodicals, conference papers, trade journals, magazines, books, patents and technical reports, with indexing back to the early 1960's. Covers all aspects of applied research in the aerospace and space sciences.
- Aerospace Research Central (ARC)
AAIAA is the premier provider of information on aerospace technology, engineering, and science. Our titles document the most important developments and the latest research in air and space history. Access to thousands of AIAA Papers and AIAA Journals, full-text. AFIT Campus access only.
Aerospace Structural Metals Handbook (ASMH) developed by Air Force and NASA. The ASMD has quickly become the industry benchmark for materials properties of high strength, light weight alloys.
- DTIC (Defense Technical Information Center)
The largest central resource for DoD and government-funded scientific, technical, engineering, and business related information available today. Students are encouraged to register for DTIC's controlled database, the R&E Gateway, for a more comprehensive search.
- NASA Tech Reports Server
The NTRS is a valuable resource for researchers, students, educators, and the public to access NASA's current and historical technical literature and engineering results. Over 500,000 aerospace-related citations, over 200,000 full-text online documents, and over 500,000 images and videos are available. NTRS content continues to grow as new scientific and technical information (STI) is created or funded by NASA. The types of information found in the NTRS include: conference papers, journal articles, meeting papers, patents, research reports, images, movies, and technical videos.
ScienceDirect is the online portal of Elsevier, one of the world's largest providers of scientific and technical literature, encompassing 1800+ journals, from 1995 forward. AFIT does not subscribe to all journals in ScienceDirect. A green key or flag indicates access. The Library also has access to certain ebooks on this portal.
- American Institute of Aeronautics & Astronautics
AIAA’s mission is to address the professional needs and interests of the past, current, and future aerospace workforce and to advance the state of aerospace science, engineering, technology, operations, and policy to benefit our global society.
- Royal Aeronautical Society
The Royal Aeronautical Society is the world's only professional body dedicated to the entire aerospace community. Established in 1866 to further the art, science and engineering of aeronautics, the Society has been at the forefront of developments in aerospace ever since.
- American Astronautical Society
The American Astronomical Society (AAS) is the major organization of professional astronomers in North America. The mission of the American Astronomical Society is to enhance and share humanity's scientific understanding of the Universe.
- Federation of American Scientists
The Federation of American Scientists, an independent, nonpartisan think tank and registered 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization, is dedicated to providing rigorous, objective, evidence-based analysis and practical policy recommendations on national and international security issues connected to applied science and technology. Moreover, FAS is committed to educating policymakers, the public, the news media, and the next generation of scientists, engineers, and global leaders about the urgent need for creating a more secure and better world.
