Beginning Your Research
The W.I. Dykes Library provides access to a number of journals and books, many of which can be accessed on-line from home. A good place to start your research is with the Computer Source, Computer Science Index, Internet and Personal Computing Abstracts, and Information Science & Technology Abstracts Databases. These databases contain numerous full-text articles from trade and scholarly journals on a wide range of topics relating to computer science.
To seach these databases, enter keywords related to your topic of interest in the box below and click search. You can also use boolean phrases such as "and," "or," and "not," and quotation marks to search for phrases.
If you are accessing these databases from home, you will need to enter a username and password. This is the same as your Blackboard username and password. For help accessing databases remotely, please see How to Connect to Databases.
