Institutional Trial

The ACM allows institutions to establish a month long trial to the Digital Library.  This is an opportunity for an organization's students, faculty, researchers, practitioners, and engineers to evaluate the ACM Digital Library in advance of purchasing an annual subscription. Users will have access to the entire Digital Library, including all of ACM's publications, including the complete archive dating back to 1954.

If your organization is interested in a trial, please contact ACM by filling out the following web form.

At time of trial activation, we would require the following information:

  • Complete name of the Institution or Organization
  • Name of the librarian, email address and contact number
  • A list of the library's static outgoing IP addresses. 

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.

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.
