Computer Science Resources in the Library
The University of Chicago computer science collection is located primarily in Eckhart Library (Eckhart Hall 217). The collection includes research level monographs and journals in theoretical computer science, including mathematical aspects of computing, computational complexity, algorithms, logic, and the use of computers to solve mathematical and scientific problems. An increasing number of journals are available in electronic form only; search the Library's E-journals List for detailed information about coverage dates and for links to the full text. Because of space considerations, some materials have been transferred to The John Crerar Library; including low-use monographs, most pre-1990 monographs, materials in popular computing, most inactive journals, and bound volumes of journals available electronically.
See the Collection Development Policy Statement for Computer Science for more detail.
Almost all Library databases can be accessed from off-campus. The easiest way to do this is to use links from the Library website. You will then be prompted for your CNetID and password to authenticate yourself as an authorized user.
If you find sources through Google Scholar or other search engines, you may not automatically get access to Library resources. IT Services has created the ProxyIt bookmarklet for these situations.
