UML Research Guide for Plastics Engineering - This guide was specifically created by Margaret Manion of UML's Lydon Library to help Plastics Engineering students, staff and faculty find information they need, and is highly complementary to the list below.

Maintaining a laboratory notebook - By Colin Purrington, this is an excellent (and sometimes amusing) guide to why and how to maintain a laboratory notebook - probably one of the most basic and most critical skills any scientist or engineer could have - with everything from tips on organization and writing to lab tests that identify which ball point pens don't bleed in common solvents. Other excellent guides from the same author include Designing conference posters, Giving science talks and Writing science papers.
