This guide is a starting point for research in the field of Computer Science. Resources include database recommendations, reference selections, catalog search tips, and internet resources.

Off-Campus Access

When you click on a database link on campus, you will go directly to the database.  When you click from off-campus, you will be prompted to log in.  The login screen for our library looks something like this. (NOTE: this is just an illustration)  

Interlibrary Loan

Databases frequently provide full-text for many articles but in some cases the full text is not available. 

In order to get an article that is not available online in full text you can request the article by submitting an Interlibrary Loan Article Request Form  A link to the form is frequently included beneath the citation in the list of article results. A link to the form can also be found on the library website under Quick Links.


Searching Article Databases

Databases are the most efficient way to find quality articles. It's important to use the most useful database for your particular topic.

Many of the article citations include a link to the full text of the article, in either PDF or HTML format..  If there is no full text link for an article, click on FIND IT     to discover if the article is available in full text in another of our databases.  If there is no FIND IT or full text link, click on the Interlibrary Loan link to request the article. 

The Search Tips on the Books page are also used for database searching.
