Guide to Ebooks and Electronic Resources
ACM Libraries subscribe to numerous online databases which allow access to thousands of documents, including
articles from scholarly journals, magazines and newspapers, as well as various online
reference works, such as encyclopedias and dictionaries.
Databases are listed alphabetically and by subject. Because these are subscriptions, most will require that you authenticate
yourself as an ACM student by
logging in with your
ACM username and password (the same login you use for Blackboard and Webadvisor).
For general instructions on how to use the online databases click here
