Abstract
From 1978 to 1990 the College of Engineering, Michigan University, offered a course: 'Technical Communications: Information Resources for Engineers' to students working on research projects. Reports results of a 1993 follow up study, to assess the impact of the course. The study also revealed that many engineers have access to the tools needed for electronic information retrieval, and that while few receive formal training in their use, there is widespread interest in learning more
