Computer Science Research Guide


You can use library electronic resources from any computer on or off campus. See a complete listing of electronic resources by name, provider, or subject. Databases covering computer science are listed below.

More electronic resources are available through Boston Public Library. However, you must first take a minute to sign up for a BPL eCard.
