Finding SAE technical papers

Use the SAE Digital Library to search for all Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) publications from 1906 - present.

  • 1906 - 1997: SAE technical papers are not online. See below for how to access these items in the MIT Libraries.
  • 1998 - present: SAE Technical Papers are available online in the SAE Digital Library.
  • SAE standards are not available online.  See the standards guide for more information.
 

Using the SAE Digital Library to find SAE papers in the MIT Libraries

If the steps outlined are too complicated, you can always Ask Us! to find it for you.  See also Using print indexes to find SAE papers in the MIT Libraries.

Papers published prior to 1998:

Use the SAE Digital Library (MIT only) to locate the paper number you need. When you find the paper in the SAE Digital Library, scroll down to the Also Published In section.

 

Case 1:

This paper is in the SAE Transactions. Transaction volumes are also given a journal title, such as Journal of Passenger Cars.

The latest 5 years of the SAE Transactions are in Barker Library’s Stacks at TL1.S679. Earlier years are kept at the Library Storage Annex.  Click "Find it in the Library/Request item" to view an itemized list, then "Request Item" to select a specific volume or "Request PDF" to request a specific paper from that volume.

 

Case 2:

If you see a “P-“ or “SP-“ there is a chance that there is a print version in Barker Library. You can check Barton by doing a keyword search for “SAE SP 596” or do a Title Begins With... search for the volume title (in this case, Structural Dynamics Testing and Analysis).

 

Case 3:

If neither of the above cases matches your paper’s record:

  • try looking for your paper in the print indexes (see below).  The SAE Digital Library does not include "also published in" information for all available years.
  • check the SAE Technical Papers on microfiche on the 5th floor of Barker Library in the drawers labeled SAE, filed by year and paper number (1961-2004)
  • check print SAE Technical papers from 1930-1965 (incomplete holdings) at TL1.S553 in the Barker Library stacks
If you have trouble finding the paper you need, Ask Us for help.

 

 

Using print indexes to find SAE papers in the MIT Libraries

Papers published prior to 1998

Look up the paper in the Annual index/abstracts of SAE technical papers, located on the fifth floor of Barker Engineering Library, in the Reference Collection, at call number ZTL1.S6779.

Case 1:

At the bottom of the record, look for a mention of the SAE Transactions.

If that field is blank, the paper is not published as part of the SAE Transactions.

The latest 5 years of the SAE Transactions are in Barker Library’s Stacks at TL1.S679. Earlier years are kept at the Library Storage Annex. Request volumes from the Annex. (Click "Find it in the Library/Request item" to view an itemized list, then "Request Item" to select a specific volume or "Request PDF" to request a specific paper from that volume.)

 

Case 2:

Look at the beginning of the record. If you see a “P-“ or “SP-“ there is a chance that there is a print version in Barker Library. You can check Barton by doing a keyword search for “SAE SP 990” in the case below.

 

Case 3:

If neither of the above cases matches your paper’s record:

  • check the SAE Technical Papers on microfiche on the 5th floor of Barker Library in the drawers labeled SAE, filed by year and paper number (1961-2004)
  • check print SAE Technical papers from 1930-1965 (incomplete holdings) at TL1.S553 in the Barker Library stacks
If you have trouble finding the paper you need, Ask Us for help.
