We go beyond Google to search a wealth of information from specialist subscription services;

Technical databases

Years of experience in information research and subscriptions, that provide us with access to hundreds of databases including Inspec, Compendex, Metadex and IEEE  Xplore, enable us to search and monitor millions of journal articles, conference proceedings and books on your behalf.

Standards and Legislation

Automatics updating services, subject searching, equivalency & currency check for British and overseas standards and legislation are also part of the service.

Commercial Database

Database access to Dun & Bradstreet and Companies House enable us to provide you with general company information and financial credit checks. We also have access to supplier details and market information.


Internal databases facilitate document location, supply and loan.

Technical enquiry service

The Information Centre is the first point of contact for all technical enquiries. With the help of our RINA expertise database we can put you in contact with the right consultant at the right time.
