The ASME Digital Collection provides 
  • ASME’s Journals from 1959 – present
  • ASME’s Conference Proceedings from 2000 – present, plus select proceedings back to 1955
  • ASME eBooks from 1993 – present, plus select titles back to 1944

ASME Digital Library asmedigitalcollection.asme.org/ : With 28 journals, 185 eBooks and hundreds of conference proceedings, the collection houses the most current and relevant content in mechanical engineering and related engineering fields, such as medical device research, energy resources, and nuclear engineering. The collection also includes past research, such as ASME’s Journal Archive, which dates back to 1960. More information can be found online, asmedigitalcollection.asme.org/ .

 Journals: The ASME Journal Program has been established to further the progress of science through the sharing of the latest engineering research. Each ASME Journal title publishes the highest quality peer-reviewed literature in their respective field. The professionally curated content includes the history of mechanical engineering research as well as the cutting-edge discoveries being made today.

Conference Proceedings : ASME sponsors more than 30 conferences per year and publishes approximately 100 proceedings volumes annually. Conference topics encompass the entire spectrum of subject areas of interest to engineering. Individual papers from 2000 to the present are currently available through the ASME Digital Collection. Normally, current conference proceedings are offered in one package and back files from 2000 to 2007 are offered in a separate package.

eBooks : The ASME Press eBooks Package currently includes 185 new and classic eBooks from 1993 to present day. The collection adds 15-20 new titles per year. ASME eBooks support ASME’s most popular international standards publications, such as the Companion Guide to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (ASME-BPVC), as well as concise, scholarly monographs in subjects such as bioengineering, nanotechnology, and energy sustainability.

Standards:  http://asmestandardscollection.org/Login.aspx

ASME is the leading international developer of codes and standards associated with the art, science, and practice of mechanical engineering. Starting with the first issuance of its legendary Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code in 1914, ASME's codes and standards have grown to nearly 600 offerings currently in print. These offerings cover a breadth of topics, including pressure technology, nuclear plants, elevators / escalators, construction, engineering design, standardization, and performance testing. ASME develops voluntary standards that enhance public safety, health, and quality of life as well as facilitate innovation, trade, and competitiveness. ASME standards are accepted for use in more than 100 countries around the world. Starting in January 2017, ASME will offer online standards subscriptions as part of the Digital Collection. The standards will be offered through a new platform in three packages, containing: The complete Boiler & Pressure Vessels Code (BPVC), All non-BPVC codes and standards (topics include: elevators; escalators; piping; bioprocessing; valves; gaskets; nuclear),  All Standards, as mentioned above
