Computing Science

If you're looking for Computing Science resources other than the online databases listed below, please consult the full guide: Computing Science Information Resources.

Top Resources

  1. The ACM's (Association for Computing Machinery) fulltext journals, conference proceedings, technical reports, and special interest group (SIG) newsletters. Includes technical and social aspects of computing technologies. Access the ACM Online Guide, a comprehensive bibliographic database on computing, via the Advanced Search function.
  2. Publications from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET, formerly the IEE.) Document types include books, journals, conference proceedings, and standards. Topic areas include electrical and computer engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering, physics, and materials science.
  3. Thousands of in-depth step-by-step video tutorials, taught by experts, on software development, design practices, business skills, web development, and photography.
  4. A medium for the publication of new developments in computer science and information technology research and teaching. Includes subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI). Materials indexed: Conference proceedings, edited multiauthor volumes, monographs, Festschrifts, and some theses,
  5. 50- to 100-page electronic books that synthesize an important research or development topic, authored by a prominent contributor to the field. These "lectures" provide more synthesis, analysis, and depth than typical research journal articles. Ideal entry points to new areas for researchers, advanced developers, and students.

Other Resources

  1. Access to publications of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence. Includes AI Magazine (15 month embargo), archive to The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (2003-2012), conference papers, technical reports, and funding tutorials.
  2. Seven decades of citations to articles on events, issues and trends in the history of business and industry. Includes the complete file of the Industrial Arts Index (1913-1957) covering topics such as aviation, commercial air travel, urban mass transit and the Atomic Age.
  3. A collection of research papers in physics, mathematics, computer science, quantitative biology, quantitative finance and statistics.
  4. A digital library of over 300,000 articles related to computer science.
  5. A full text archive of publications in the area of cognitive science.
  6. A collection of bibliographies of literature in computer science from various sources, covering most aspects of computer science.
  7. E-books cover topics related to biomedical and life sciences.
  8. A sub-section of, CoRR is a fulltext repository of self-archived e-papers in Computing Science. 40 categories listed.
  9. A database of citations from a selection of major computing science journals and proceedings.
  10. An index to general science journals, magazines, and some trade publications with coverage back to 1984. Subject coverage includes astronomy, biology, botany, chemistry, conservation, health & medicine, oceanography, physics, zoology and more.
  11. Bibliography on the design, evaluation and implementation of interactive computing systems for human use
  12. Articles on mathematics, statistics and computer science.
  13. A free repository of software for scientific computing comprising a large number of separate programs and libraries. Most of the code is written in C and Fortran, with some programs in other languages. Of interest to the numerical, scientific computing, and other communities,
  14. Worlds most comprehensive collection of dissertations and theses from around the world. Historic and ongoing coverage.
  15. Leased, rotating collection of technology, digital media, and business books; educational videos included as well. Both trade (eg, O'Reilly) and academic publishers (CRC, Wiley) in collection. Requires separate login.
  16. Includes journal articles, ebooks, and conference proceedings from the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE). Covers the field of optics, photonics, medical imaging, remote sensing, and optical engineering.
  17. Reports new developments in the fields of control and information sciences. Includes preliminary drafts of monographs and advanced textbooks, lectures, research reports, and conference papers.
  18. Indexes core journal articles, conference proceedings, and other resources in the sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities, can be used for citation analysis of research. A citation index contains the references cited by the authors of the publications covered by the index. You can use these references to do a cited reference search. This type of search enables you to find works that cite a previously published work.
