Discover and connect with the world’s leading computer scientists, educators and practitioners

Last week, we showed you how the “Magazines” section of the ACM Digital Library helps you discover more about ACM’s magazines. Now we’d like to introduce you to the “People” section of the ACM DL, and how you can use it to discover ACM’s community of authors across the broad spectrum of computing disciplines.

When you visit the People section of the ACM DL, you will see a sortable selection of ACM authors. Each author’s preview on this page will allow you to click through to their full profile, or see a “Quick View,” which displays the author’s top-level bibliographic data, affiliations, top collaborators, and more. The People landing page also allows you to search for individuals by name, or to use additional search filters like subject, affiliations, geography and others to narrow your results.

Clicking “View Profile” on any author will take you to their author profile, which provides a comprehensive look at this individual’s published work, affiliations, subject areas and more. Only authors who have taken ownership of their ACM DL author profile pages are listed on the new DL People landing page.

We invite you to explore these features at DLnext.acm.org on your desktop, tablet and mobile devices, and if you are an author, please take ownership of your author profile page, enhance it with your contact information and social identities, and build your connections. As always, please let us know what you think by using the feedback button on the DLNext beta site, or contact us via email at dl-team@hq.acm.org or via Twitter @ACMDL.
