The Digital Library : Library Advisory Board

The ACM Library Advisory Board is a group of librarians from around the world representing Academic, Corporate, and Government libraries focused on disseminating scholarly information to a user base of educators, researchers, students, and practitioners in the fields of information technology and computer science.

The group exists to advise ACM on economic, strategic, and technical issues related to the dissemination of ACM's publications via the ACM Digital Library and other third party electronic platforms.

The group or a sub-set of the group meets in person annually, during which topics of mutual interest to ACM and the library community are discussed, and the entire group is asked to provide ongoing feedback to ACM on a wide range of issues.

The most recent meeting of the ACM Library Advisory Board was held in New York City on July 23 - 24, 2015.

The DevOps Phenomenon

ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” 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, “The DevOps Phenomenon” by Anna Wiedemann, Nicole Forsgren, Manuel Wiesche, Heiko Gewald and Helmut Krcmar, gives an overview of stories from across the industry about software organizations overcoming early hurdles of adopting DevOps practices, and coming out on the other side with tighter integration between software and operations teams, faster delivery times for new software features, and achieving higher levels of stability.
