"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
