College of Computing: Articles and Databases

This guide is a general tool for students and faculty in the College of Computing.

Where to Start

The first step finding published material on your topic is to use a finding aid like the databases to the left.  If you are unsure where to start, below is a quick guide to the databases to the left (for more information about a database click the information icon next to the title).

The second step is identifying a source for the material that you find.  With full-text resources, this may be the same tool as you used in step one.  For others, the FindIt@GT Link or button FindIt@GT can allow you to identify whether the resource is available electronically, in print, or if you may need to request it through another library.

Primary Databases for Academic Articles:

  1. INSPEC - Comprehensive coverage in the fields of electronics, computer science, physics, electrical, control, production, and mechanical enginnering.
  2. ACM Digital Library - Full text of every article ever published by ACM. 
  3. CiteSeer - A library and search engine that focuses on the literature in computer and information science.
  4. Web of Science -An interdisciplinary database for science, useful features include advanced citation analysis.
