"Can you be an engineer and not be able to write, speak, or listen effectively? Sure, but not a successful one." What a great quote. It's from Carl Selinger's "Stuff you don't learn in engineering school" from the September 2003 IEEE Spectrum (v40i9). There's certainly a role that an engineering library can play teaching those skills and an article written by and engineer in an engineering journal can certainly help make the case.
