1) Our digital sources are available to you from off campus. Off campus access instructions are available here.
2) If you sign in to HathiTrust, about half of the records for physical books that we have here at the Gould Library will be available for "Temporary Access." Step by step instructions are available here.
3) If you sign in to Catalyst you will see a "Request For Digitization" link. This will lead you to an Interlibrary Loan form, which is how we're collecting and tracking digitization requests. Be aware that this may take some time and we cannot guarantee a timeline.
4) You may submit Interlibrary Loan requests for articles and book sections, though please be aware that there may be significant delays. We cannot request physical items (full books etc) through ILL at this time.
5) You may always contact me for help determining whether sources are available remotely or to help you identify sources that are available that may fit your needs.
Computer Science scholarship is published as papers as well as conference proceedings. You will find both of these in the databases below.
These are the places I'd start my search. They all have differences in terms of what they cover, how they search, and their ranking algorithms, so it's worth running searches in all of them if you want to be thorough.
May have a specific focus or be better for interdisciplinary searches
A great strategy is to identify organizations that are active around your topic and then look for a section of their website that includes publications, reports, or technical information. You can also search Google including the string ("white paper" OR "position paper") in your search to gather reports by various institutions and associations.
In a field where so much work is proprietary, patent searching may be one of the few publicly available ways to find out about new ideas in computer science and engineering. As you search, pay attention to:
When you open an interesting patent, take a minute to look at its classification(s), and click on the text definition of any classification that seems interesting. If you click on the linked classification code, it'll run a search as you'd expect, but if you click on the text definition of the code it'll open up the classification hierarchy so you can see what the broader terms are that might be useful to you or whether the wording of a particular classification seemed right but its hierarchy makes it clear that you've veered off into a foreign land.
Also be aware that if you search for a classification number, google will return all the more specific numbers in the classification hierarchy as well as the number you searched.
