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 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:
- INSPEC - Comprehensive coverage in the fields of electronics, computer science, physics, electrical, control, production, and mechanical enginnering.
- ACM Digital Library - Full text of every article ever published by ACM.
- CiteSeer - A library and search engine that focuses on the literature in computer and information science.
- Web of Science -An interdisciplinary database for science, useful features include advanced citation analysis.
Primary Databases for Technical Reports:
- Computer Research Repository (in ArXiv.org) - A public archive of technical reports and conference papers in Computing.
- NTIS - Useful for searching government reports including reports of U.S. agencies, as well as reports from international organizations and other governments
Table of Contents and Current Awareness Services

TechXtra is a free service which can help you find articles, books, the best websites, the latest industry news, job announcements, technical reports, technical data, full text eprints, the latest research, thesis & dissertations, teaching and learning resources and more, in engineering, mathematics and computing.
ticTOCS - Journal Tables of Content
The ticTOCs Journal Tables of Contents service makes it easy for academics, researchers, students and anyone else to keep up-to-date with newly published scholarly material by enabling them to find, display, store, combine and reuse thousands of journal tables of contents from multiple publishers. With ticTOCs, it only takes a tick or two to keep up to date.
The links below begin with a link to the GT Library eJournal page an excellent starting place to search for a journal title and to identify its availability to the GT community.
Following that link isa subject links to open-access journals that relate to Computer Science.
Finally, several individual open-access journals are highlighted. Please send me an email, or leave a comment below if you have other open-access favorites that you would like to share on this guide.
Open access to 600,000+ e-prints in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Quantitative Biology, Quantitative Finance and Statistics
Welcome to CogPrints, an electronic archive for self-archive papers in any area of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Linguistics, and many areas of Computer Science (e.g., artificial intelligence, robotics, vison, learning, speech, neural networks), Philosophy , Biology, Medicine, as well as any other portions of the physical, social and mathematical sciences that are pertinent to the study of cognition.
The E-print Network is a vast, integrated network of electronic scientific and technical information created by scientists and research engineers active in their respective fields, all full-text searchable. E-print Network is intended for use by other scientists, engineers, and students at advanced levels.
Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS)
Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS) is an international refereed open access venue for the rapid electronic publication of the proceedings of workshops and conferences, and of festschriften, etc, in the general area of theoretical computer science, broadly construed.
In addition to the databases above, the following subject bibliographies can help focus your search for books, chapters, proceedings, and articles.
The Collection of Computer Science Bibliographies
This is a collection of bibliographies of scientific literature in computer science from various sources, covering most aspects of computer science.
The collection currently contains more than 3 millions of references (mostly to journal articles, conference papers and technical reports), clustered in about 1500 bibliographies, and consists of more than 2.3 GBytes (530MB gzipped) of BibTeX entries. More than 600 000 references contain crossreferences to citing or cited publications.
Over 22,500 article references in the fields of computer graphics,
computer animation, geometric modeling and computer vision.
The HCI Bibliography is a free-access online bibliographic database related to the subject of Human-Computer Interaction.
