SGI-Line is a literature database containing references to international geotechnical and geoenvionmental literature in a broad context, from practical solutions to theoretical analysis.
The database is one of a small number in the world specialised in geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering. The database contains some 75.000 references from 1976 up to present.
The database is continuously updated and expanded with about 2.000 references a year. Several references added during the recent years links to further information, full-text documents or abstracts/table of contents.
SGI-Line is produced by the Swedish Geotechnical Institute, Sweden. Most of the documents, books, articles in journals, papers in conference proceedings, reports, theses etc., referred to in the database are available in the SGI Library.
Indexing and Classification
The references in SGI-Line is described by both keywords in English and classification code(s). Approximately 800 geotechnical keywords are used for indexing the references, and for classification the International Geotechnical Classification System, IGC, is used.
