Celebrating 40 Years of Moon Landings, Color Television and Inspec®
The last year of the swinging ‘60s was famous for a number of technological advancements including the launch of the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) Inspec® database. 1969 was also famous for Neil Armstrong taking the first steps on the moon, the launch of the Mariner 6 Mars probe, the start of regular color television broadcasts in the UK and the invention of the Unix computer operating system.
Inspec , IET’s bibliographic database of abstracts to journal articles, conference proceedings, technical reports and other literature, celebrates its ruby anniversary this year, although the online archives date back to 1898. Inspec provides comprehensive coverage of traditional and cutting-edge publications in the fields of physics, electrical and electronic engineering, communications, computer science, control engineering, information technology, manufacturing and mechanical engineering.
Inspec now adds nearly 700,000 records each year to the database, all of which have a range of specialized subject indexing created by scientific subject experts to enhance retrieval. A further Inspec milestone will be reached this fall as the 11 millionth record will be added.
