dc.description.abstract The need for learning does not end after graduation from engineering school or the start of employment. It is actually the beginning of an engineer’s life-long education. Engineers are generally known for their good systematic problem solving skills acquired from years of solid education in universities and professional schools. However, with globalization and the rapid obsolescence of technology engineers now have to increasingly acquire new skills and knowledge to anticipate and face today’s as well as tomorrow’s unpredictable challenges. Engineers, like other professionals today, need to develop life-long and independent learning habits in order to keep pace with the fast moving environment. With the increasing power of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and the proliferation of online content on the Web, information has now become more accessible to engineers as compared to the past. This paper will discuss how engineers can make use of the plethora of online resources in their continuous independent learning journey and will highlight how libraries can be a strong partner in their lifelong learning activities.
