The assistance she has given me in some research projects has been outstanding. She is knowledgeable and the soul of diligence and thoroughness.

"This benefit isn’t just for college members! In fact, I use it all the time for my job (it’s one of my favorite benefits). All you need to do is send an email (post a question) for information, and abstracts for high-quality articles are sent back to you, which will save you time and frustration searching on your own." — Cary J. Rosenberg, CMfgE, Watts Water Technologies Inc., SME Member Since 1993
