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.

Prediction-Serving Systems

ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” is your number one resource for keeping up with emerging developments in the world of theory and applying them to the challenges you face on a daily basis. In this installment, Dan Crankshaw and Joey Gonzalez provide an overview of machine learning server systems. What happens when we wish to actually deploy a machine learning model to production, and how do we serve predictions with high accuracy and high computational efficiency? Dan and Joey’s curated research selection presents cutting-edge techniques spanning database-level integration, video processing, and prediction middleware. Given the explosion of interest in machine learning and its increasing impact on seemingly every application vertical, it's possible that systems such as these will become as commonplace as relational databases are today. 

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.

Why I Belong to ACM
