Knovel and American Society of Civil Engineers Partner to Broaden Content Availability

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Jul 16, 2012) - Knovel, the leading provider of a Web-based application integrating technical information with analytical and search tools, and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) today announced a new publishing partnership that will expand the ASCE publication footprint globally and offer Knovel customers a richer content base.

Knovel will initially add 43 ASCE titles, including guides to working with ASCE 7-10 and over 20 recently updated or released Manuals of Practice, to its current offering of engineering content. In addition, Knovel will integrate selected ASCE committee reports and ASCE Press titles and make them available to engineers across the globe.

"We recognize Knovel's expertise to package and enhance engineering content in unique ways," said Bruce Gossett, managing director and publisher at the ASCE. "Integrating ASCE's information with Knovel's analytical and search tools will facilitate the design, quality, and sustainability of constructed projects. This makes Knovel a natural partner for us."

Many of Knovel's 29 subject areas will be enriched by ASCE content. ASCE content will be of particular importance to environmental, structural and geotechnical engineers, providing them with authoritative information on site remediation, water and wastewater treatment, forensic engineering, pipeline design and installation, designing with steel, and more.

"As a resource, Knovel helps a wide variety of engineers, and it is important to offer trusted content that helps improve quality and safety," said Delores Meglio, vice president of publisher relations for Knovel. "Interdisciplinary exchange is critical to the success of any project. By empowering engineers to collaboratively work with ASCE content, Knovel can support that exchange and the quality products that result from it."

Knovel partners with more than 90 societies and publishers worldwide to ensure engineers have access to trusted sources of technical content across 29 engineering subject areas.
