Digital Library Platform and Features

The ACM Digital Library Platform is ACM’s own proprietary system that is wholly developed, hosted, and maintained by ACM. The system is built on open source technology in collaboration with volunteers from the scientific community and contains many of the most powerful search features available today.

  • Powerful Search and Guided Navigation
  • Seamless Integration between DL and Guide Index
  • Most Comprehensive Database of Author Profiles, including detailed bibliometrics of nearly every author in the field
  • A Complete List of Index Terms for each article based on the ACM’s widely used 2012 Computing Classification Scheme (CCS)
  • Fully exportable citation pages in Endnote, BibTex, and ACM Ref formats
  • Extensive use of DOIs with reference linking provided through CrossRef
  • IP Authentication and Domain Name Look Up for Institutional Customers
  • Supports Athens and Shibboleth authentication
  • Open URL and SFX Compliant
  • COUNTER IV and SUSHI Compliant Usage Statistics

The DevOps Phenomenon

ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” consistently serves up expert-curated guides to the best of computing research, and relates these breakthroughs to the challenges that software engineers face every day. This installment of RfP is by Anna Wiedemann, Nicole Forsgren, Manuel Wiesche, Heiko Gewald, and Helmut Krcmar. Titled “The DevOps Phenomenon,” this RfP gives an overview of stories from across the industry about software organizations overcoming the early hurdles of adopting DevOps practices, and coming out on the other side with tighter integration between their software and operations teams, faster delivery times for new software features, and achieving a higher level of stability.

ACM Case Studies

Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.
