April 28, 2011: New Interactivity Tools in ACM Digital Library Help Users Customize and Share Computing Resources
ACM's Digital Library now incorporates a variety of tools that enable users to customize, comment on, and share the resources of the world's most comprehensive database of computing literature. The site simplifies usability, extends connections, and expands content for its more than 1.5 million users.
The newly integrated features, functionality, and content include:
- Redesigned binders for creating personal, annotatable collections of bibliographies or reading lists, sharing them with colleagues, and exporting them into standard authoring tools or saving them in PDF.
- Expanded visualization technology that captures the details of the more than 170 international conferences associated with ACM through multidimensional geographic maps.
- Visually enhanced pages for both conferences and Special Interest Groups that link to rich metadata including tag clouds of covered technical subject matter, proceedings archives, related technical areas, author publication metrics, and award winners.
- Broadened citation pages with tabular format for easy access to relevant journals, magazines, Special Interest Groups, and events, with additional tabs displaying metadata for each article.
- Tools for managing information flow including RSS feeds and table-of-contents alerts, as well as social network channels to retrieve data, promote user engagement, and introduce user content.
