Numerical techniques such as, first of all, the finite element and boundary element methods are frequently used today in research as well as in many industry applications. The output of finite element and boundary element literature and development of software, has been growing during last three decades. Today, it is almost impossible to be up-to-date with all the relevant information. At present, we have an excess of information--the term "information fatigue syndrome" will soon be a recognized medical condition. The author presents, by means of information from his database, the progress of both numerical techniques in their theoretical developments and practical usage for the period of last 30 years. The topics included: finite element and boundary element literature and software with emphasis on structural and solid mechanics. Some pointers for classical, printed, and for modern, on-line, information retrieval are given. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
