Abstract

While preparing a bibliography of literature on Australian Engineering Heritage, the authors searched the ENGINE, HERA, WATR and ROAD on-line databases for appropriate literature. The search techniques are described, and the type of material located by these searches is discussed. Among the many types of users of this material, are persons interested in identification, assessment, recording, preservation and presentation of Engineering Heritage, and also persons interested in history and particularly in the history of ideas. The needs of these various groups with implications for those interested in the clever country and value added products are discussed. Some means of satisfying these needs are identified.
