Open URL Compliant
The ACM Digital Library is Open URL compliant.
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 is an Open URL Link Resolver which is made available by Exlibrishttp://www.exlibrisgroup.com/category/SFXOverview. SFX 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why I Belong to ACM
Hear from Bryan Cantrill, vice president of engineering at Joyent, Ben Fried chief information officer at Google, and Theo Schlossnagle, OmniTI founder on why they are members of ACM.
ACM is a volunteer-led and member-driven organization. Everything ACM accomplishes is through the efforts of people like you. A wide range of activities keep ACM moving, including organizing conferences, editing journals, reviewing papers and participating on boards and committees, to name just a few. Find out all the ways that you can volunteer with ACM.
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.
