Terms for ACM Institutional Members - Digital Library Packages

  • Access for 3 simultaneous users of the Digital Library Core Package is included.
  • A Non-profit Institutional Member (academic library) may provide ACM with as many IP addresses of any class as desired within one geographical location (i.e. a campus), plus any additional off-campus sites that are under the main campus' administration. For an additional fee of $1,000 per site, DL access will be granted to off-campus sites that are under their own administration (i.e. pay for goods and services themselves, not through the main campus system).
  • Renewing Corporate Institutional Members may provide IP addresses within one geographical location only (per membership). Any Corporation desiring access at multiple locations should contact ACM.

Volunteer with SocialCoder

You can use your technical skills for social good and offer volunteer support on software development projects to organizations who could not otherwise afford it. SocialCoder connects volunteer programmers/software developers with registered charities and helps match them to suitable projects based on their skills, experience, and the causes they care about. Learn more about ACM’s new partnership with SocialCoder, and how you can get involved.

ACM Case Studies

Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.
