Introduction: The ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) Digital Library is a vast collection of citations and full text from ACM journal and newsletter articles and conference proceedings. It contains the full-text for articles published in ACM and affiliated organizations' periodicals and proceedings since 1985, as well as bibliographic information, abstracts, and reviews for those articles. These publications cover various fields related to computing, including software, hardware, computational theory, artificial intelligence, information science, human-computer interaction, instructional technology, and the research and development communities involved in computing.
This database includes links to two related resources: the Guide to Computing Literature and Computing Reviews. The Guide is a collection of bibliographic citations and abstracts of works published by the ACM and 3,000 other publishers. Computing Reviews comprehensively reviews books, articles, conference proceedings, theses, technical reports, and Web-based publications in computer science.
The ACM Digital Library indexes more than 200 sources including international journals, magazines, newsletters, conferences, symposia and workshops. The contents of the ACM Digital Library is listed at http://portal.acm.org/contents_dl.cfm
