Books & Ebooks
To find what books are available at ACM campus libraries (Cumberland & Bedford), use the quick library search box to the Online Catalog.  Click on the Help tab for instructions & advice.

Note that you can request to have a print book or other material held for you for pickup at a campus near you. You will need a library card to borrow physical materials.

Many ebooks have a direct link in the catalog record so that you can access the content directly online. For further instructions, click here Guide to Ebooks and Electronic Resources


Online Databases

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 A Quickie Guide to Using Databases
