Open URL Compliant

The ACM Digital Library is Open URL compliant.  

Open URL

Open URL is a standardized method of presenting URLs of materials published on publication platforms such as the ACM Digital Library.  Using Open URL allows indexing databases or link resolvers to create better search results across multiple databases belonging to a library’s electronic resources.

SFX

SFX is an Open URL Link Resolver which is made available by Exlibrishttp://www.exlibrisgroup.com/category/SFXOverviewSFX allows users to search for a citation across their multiple Open URL compliant online resources provided by their library.  The user can then find the same source materials available across various platforms, providers and media types.

The ACM Digital Library is SFX enabled and Open URL compliant.  In order for libraries to begin to use this service please go to the Consort Admin Tool page at http://campus.acm.org/public/consortium/consort_main.cfm or the Corporate Admin Tool page at http://campus.acm.org/public/corporation/corporate_main.cfm and upload your URL Resolver Base Address and Logo. Alternative, you may send these to dl-info@acm.org

Volunteer with SocialCoder

You can use your technical skills for social good and offer volunteer support on software development projects to organizations who could not otherwise afford it. SocialCoder connects volunteer programmers/software developers with registered charities and helps match them to suitable projects based on their skills, experience, and the causes they care about. Learn more about ACM’s new partnership with SocialCoder, and how you can get involved.

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.
