WASHINGTON (1 April 2020) — IEEE-USA’s eBooks and audio books help IEEE members advance their careers, work on their soft skills, learn about public policy, even provide a fun distraction–and now, for the first time, the whole collection is available to all IEEE members for free in the IEEE-USA Online Shop.
“This is a difficult time for our members and our country, as the world deals with this unprecedented public health situation,” said Jim Conrad, 2020 IEEE-USA President. “By providing all of our eBooks for free to our members, we hope to make their time at home in isolation a little more productive. Some of these e-books are also helpful for those members who are facing job security questions, or recent unemployment.”
All IEEE members can now access for free titles on careers, skill development, professional development, and other topics from industry veterans such as, Caring for Your Project Team, by Harry T. Roman; The In’s and Out’s of Mentoring, by Peggy Hutcheson; and Critical Thinking Skills for Engineers–Book 1: Analytical Skills, by Sridhar Ramanathan. Members can also now get free IEEE-USA’s first comic book, complete with new engineering superheroes, The Slate Twins: Caught in the Currents, Vol. 1, by cartoonist Jeff Knurek.
Browse the full collection of IEEE-USA eBooks and audio books from the IEEE-USA Online Shop. Log in with your IEEE account to download more than 150 titles for free! You can get titles currently available, as well as future IEEE-USA eBooks and audio books.
A limited number of reports, such as the annual IEEE-USA Employment Survey, and other surveys, are not included among the free eBook titles. IEEE Members can purchase these reports for a discounted rate.
