Professional (also known as Trade) journals look much like popular magazines. For example, they often have glossy covers with photographs and may contain advertisements, usually for products frequently used in the profession. However, they are not published for the general public, but rather for people working in a specific profession or trade. The content of these journals is tailored for people with some knowledge of the profession and intended to keep professionals current with developments in their fields.
The Library subscribes to several professional journals that support a variety of engineering areas, such as Engineering Dimensions and the Journal of Professional Engineers - Ontario (PEO)
