Computer Science

Research is the process of discovery, and in this sense it is a creative act. It is guided by questions, shaped by evidence, and concludes with the sharing of one’s findings.

Core Resources

  • ACM Digital Library
    A vast collection of citations and full text from the Association for Computing Machinery. Includes journals, newsletter articles and conference proceedings.

  • Applied Science & Technology Source
    Abstracting, indexing and some full text for academic journals, professional publications, and other reference sources in computer science. Subject areas include engineering disciplines, computer theory & systems, new technologies, and social & professional context.

  • ProQuest Computing
    Search top computing journals in full text for research on subjects such as database design, software development, web commerce, LANs, WANs, Intranets, and the Internet.

  • ProQuest Science Database
    Search full text and images for the leading periodicals in science and technology. Subject coverage includes computers, engineering, physics, telecommunications, and transportation. Researchers have access to all the charts, diagrams, graphs, tables, photos, and other graphical elements so vital to scientific and technical literature.

  • Science & Technology Collection
    Contains full text for hundreds of leading scholarly journals covering a wide-array of scientific and technological subject areas. In addition to the full text, this database offers indexing and abstracts for more than 1,800 publications.

Supplemental Resources

  • Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts
    Indexes more than 600 periodicals, plus books, research reports and proceedings.

  • MathSciNet
    An electronic publication offering access to a carefully maintained and easily searchable database of reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information for much of the mathematical sciences literature. Continuing in the tradition of the paper publication, Mathematical Reviews (MR), which was first published in 1940, expert reviewers are selected by a staff of professional mathematicians to write reviews of the current published literature; over 40,000 reviews are added to the database each year. Extending the MR tradition, MathSciNet contains over 2 million items and over 1 million direct links to original articles. Bibliographic data from retrodigitized articles dates back to the early 1800s. This web of citations allows users to track the history and influence of research publications in the mathematical sciences.
