The ACM Digital Library provides access to a searchable database of bibliographic information, abstracts, reviews, and the full-text for articles published in ACM periodicals and proceedings since its founding in 1947 together with selected works published by affiliated organizations.

Access to the Digital Library is through a paid subscription and is restricted to computers with Elon IP numbers. Elon currently subscribes only to the Digital Library and not to other resources available through the ACM portal such as the Guide to Computing Literature. Attempts to access the Digital Library from an off campus IP or to access resources that are not part of the University’s Digital Library subscription will result in a prompt for a user ID and password.

The Digital Library is sponsored by ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, from which more information is available
