Given the interdisciplinarity of engineering design, and the need of a swift access to an up-to-date bibliography on the subject, the production of a design database becomes an imperative and challenging task. This is how two designers of the McGill NSERC Chair in Design Engineering teamed up with two expert librarians, also of McGill University, in an attempt to produce a database with a search engine that caters to designers at large, with special emphasis on engineers.
