Founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME is the premier professional membership organisation for more than 140,000 mechanical engineers and associated members worldwide.

The ASME Digital Collection, previously known as the ASME Digital Library, is ASME’s repository of current and archival literature featuring:

ASME’s Journals from 1960

Each ASME Journal title publishes the highest quality peer-reviewed literature in its respective field of mechanical engineering. The professionally curated content that comprises the material available through the journals includes the history of mechanical engineering research as well as the cutting-edge discoveries being made today

ASME’s Conference Proceedings from 2000

ASME sponsors more than 30 conferences per year and publishes approximately 100 proceeding volumes annually. Conference topics encompass the entire spectrum of subject areas of interest to mechanical engineers and associated disciplines.

ASME Press eBooks selected from 1993

The ASME eBook collection offers over 170 recent and classic ASME books. ASME Press publishes high-quality professional and reference works, handbooks, select non-ASME conference proceedings, as well as advanced monographs in established and emerging areas of interest to mechanical engineers and allied disciplines. These include guidebooks that support ASME’s international Standards publications, such as the Companion Guide to the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code (ASME-BPVC), as well as concise, scholarly monographs in subjects such as bioengineering, nanotechnology and energy sustainability.
