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 is an Open URL Link Resolver which is made available by Exlibris. 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 contact DL Support at
