Database of the Month: ACM Digital Library

The ACM Digital Library contains the full-text for articles published in ACM and affiliated organizations' periodicals and proceedings since 1985, as well as bibliographic information, abstracts, and reviews for those articles. These publications cover various fields related to computing, including software, hardware, computational theory, artificial intelligence, information science, human-computer interaction, instructional technology, and the research and development communities involved in computing.

Searching of the full-text is available using keywords, authors, and ACM subject classification terms, and features phrase searching, use of wildcards, and Boolean expression searching as well as search limitation on fields, publication, and publication date. If you would like to see a video tutorial on how to use the ACM Digital Library from the James A. Cannavino Library at Marist College, click here.

This database includes links to two related resources: the Guide to Computing Literature and Computing Reviews. The Guide is a collection of bibliographic citations and abstracts of works published by the ACM and 3,000 other publishers. Computing Reviews comprehensively reviews books, articles, conference proceedings, theses, technical reports, and Web-based publications in computer science.
