New Information Studies Resource

Finding information about technology is critical to today’s Information Studies students and faculty. In an effort enhance our offering of technology resources available to the UA community, the University Libraries now subscribe to the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) Digital Library database. ACM is a widely recognized organization with a mission to advance computing as a science and a profession.

This database is a vast collection of citations and full text from ACM journal and newsletter articles, as well as conference proceedings. Key topics include: computer technology, online education, software engineering, programming, networking, human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, and information systems, to name a few.

Free registration is required to access personalized services, such as table-of-contents (TOC) alerts and virtual binders. The TOC alert service sends an email when a new issue of an ACM resource has been posted in the digital library. The virtual binder is your own personal bibliography where you can organize and store copies of articles of interest or build your own resource list for future research.

The ACM Digital Library is available from the Libraries’ Databases and Indexes page. As always, if you need help with this or any other library resource drop by the Dewey Library Reference Desk, call us at 442-3691, or submit ani Ask-A-Librarian request online.
