DL End-user Policy

Users of the ACM Digital Library are asked to abide by the ACM Author Rights and Publishing Policy, paying particular attention to the permissions statement

You may make digital or hard copies of the individual articles that you are entitled to access for personal or classroom use, as long as the copies are not sold to the students and they bear the appropriate ACM copyright or license notice. You may assemble and distribute links that point to works in the ACM Digital Library. 

Do not republish these ACM works, or post them on other servers, or redistribute them to lists, without first getting explicit permission from ACM. Contact permissions@acm.org. Please do not abuse your access rights to the ACM Digital Library by wholesale duplication of all or substantial sections of the ACM Digital Library. 

Do not use robots or intelligent agents: they degrade the performance of the system for everyone, and are not a proper use of the ACM Digital Library. ACM reserves the right to suspend, or even cancel your subscription, if systematic downloading is discovered. ACM also reserves the right to block access to the Digital Library for IP addresses from where such activities are found to be originating. For a full statement of institutional, librarian, and individual usage rights, see: Digital Library Usage Policies

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.
