The National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship Program (NDSEG) is a renowned Department of Defense fellowship program available to students in the beginning stages of their graduate studies and applications for the program are now available at http://ndseg.asee.org.
Each spring, government agencies including: the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the Army Research Office (ARO), the High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCM), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR) sponsor 200 students with awards.
These awards include full tuition and mandatory fee coverage, a monthly stipend to off-set additional costs incurred, and up to $1,000 in health insurance per academic year. The award lasts for 36-months and is portable to any U.S. academic institution.
The fifteen supported program disciplines include:
- Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering,
- Chemical Engineering,
- Civil Engineering,
- Cognitive/Neural/Behavioral Sciences,
- Computer and Computational Sciences,
- Electrical Engineering,
- Materials Science and Engineering,
- Mechanical Engineering,
- Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering,
Students applying must have no more than two years of full-time graduate study completed at the time an application submission and all applications for the 2011 award are due by December 17, 2010.
If any questions should arise, please feel free to direct all correspondence to our program’s e-mail account (firstname.lastname@example.org). All inquiries will be responded to as soon as possible. If questions require an immediate response, there is an application and program FAQ on online as well that you can find at http://ndseg.asee.org

For all SciFinder Scholar Users:
We are nearing the end of our migration from the old SciFinder Scholar client software to the newer Web interface.
The migration process began in May 2009. So far, almost 1,000 UT-Austin users have registered for SF-Web accounts. However, our usage statistics make it clear that many more users have yet to make the switch, and if you haven’t you are now facing low odds of successfully connecting using the client method. This is because most of the “seats” that we have access to are now assigned to the Web interface, where success rates are near 100%. While it’s understandable that some people are reluctant to switch for various reasons, the client is obsolete and doesn’t offer the same features as the Web.
On September 1, we will be turning off access to the client altogether in order to complete the transition and re-unify the UT System’s pool of shared seats.
To continue to use SciFinder, everyone who hasn’t already done so needs to register for a Web account. Begin the web registration process at http://www.lib.utexas.edu/chem/scifinder.html
Please also make sure all your group colleagues are aware of this.
If you have any questions, please contact:

See the review on the Tex Libris Blog.
Reed Elsevier announced, in a recent press release, that it will cease 23 titles, including the following four engineering related titles: Control Engineering, Modern Materials Handling, Plant Engineering, and Semiconductor International.
Users will no longer have access to the old SciFinder client software from off campus; the web version of SciFinder (which requires personal registration) can be used in place of the client. For more information please see the Chemistry Library page www.lib.utexas.edu/chem/scifinder.html

The stacks and seating areas of the Mallet Library are currently closed to the public during the Welch Plaza renovation project.
Summer Session Hours
June 4 – August 17
|See Library Hours for current information.
August intersession hours (Aug. 18-25) to be determined.
- Library materials will be paged from the stacks by library staff upon request. However, some materials may be temporarily inaccessible to staff due to obstructions or safety concerns. Patrons may request paging in advance by calling the Library at 512-495-4600 or via email. Please provide full bibliographic details including the call numbers of items you wish to have retrieved.
- Most public workstations and the pay printer will be available.
- Seating will be very limited.
- Noise and dust may be an ongoing annoyance.
- Departmental and public photocopiers (1 each) will be moved and available. The public copy card vending machine will not be available. Purchase and re-value your cards in other campus libraries.
- Reserves materials will be available at the desk as usual. Loan periods will be unchanged.
- Some reference materials will be available, as will current issues of journals.
- Access to electronic information resources will not be affected.
We do not know the exact date of completion and re-opening. Construction in the libary may not be finished by the start of fall classes.
We will do our best to maintain basic services during the disruption. We regret the inconvenience this project will cause. However, we look forward hopefully to a leak-free future in the Mallet Library!
