Current collection strengths focus in the areas of machine learning, the theory of computation, distributed systems, programming languages, and modeling and simulation.
Digital library packages of journals such as IEEE Xplore : IEEE electronic library (IEL) online. 1913- and ACM Digital Library 1947- along with conference proceedings provide a strong core of current and historical collection supporting Computer Science.
E-books, with their 24/7 availability, are a growing part of the Boston College Libraries Computer Science collection. While many print books are still purchased, e-book purchases particularly make sense with titles unlikely to be read cover-to-cover, but, instead, read as individual chapters -- much as users read online journal articles. Reference resources and conference proceedings are now purchased almost exclusively as e-books.
For more information on the Library’s e-book selection, see Selection Criteria and the E-Books at Boston College guide. We are conscious that the e-book industry is rapidly changing and, as a result, that our policies and selection criteria regarding e-books will inevitably evolve. We are interested in your views on e-books, and especially your usage of them.
