Welcome to the WCU Library Services guide to research resources in Computer Science - from WCU Library and beyond.  This page of the Guide includes:

  • new* Library OneSearch - try it! Send Feedback & let us know what you think.
  • PILOT library catalog search box.
  • Research Databases
    Using a database focused on computer science content allows you to take advantage of the database's unique characteristics.  Two of the databases specifically search their publications (ACM & IEEE), while the Computers and Applied Sciences database (from EBSCO) will return articles from a broader range of publishers.
  • Streaming Video - an example of the streaming videos available from WCU Libraries' subscription to the Films on Demand database.
  • New Books list - new print and e-book titles at WCU Libraries.
  • User feedback box - let me know what you think.  Do you have suggestions for additional content/links?  Suggestion for a book purchase?

See the tab above for > Journals & Websites related to Computer Science.

Please contact me (info at right -->) if you have suggestions for other additions to this guide.  As a resource for a community of learners, this guide will benefit from the combined expertise of all!


Streaming Videos for Online Learning

Did you know that WCU Libraries has a subscription to a large and growing collection of online videos, including many in Computer Science? One collection is called "Films on Demand" and is listed under "Databases" on the Libraries' website. Data Mining: Big Data's Increasing Challenge and Payoff, below, is one example.
