New for Computer Science

University Libraries has acquired a number of new eBooks, books and databases for Computer Science researchers, students and faculty.

Database

Synthesis Digital Library of Engineering and Computer Science. Collection 1

Synthesis Digital Library of Engineering and Computer Science. Collection 2

Description: Synthesis is an innovative information service for the research, development, and educational community in engineering and computer science. The basic component of the library is a 50- to 100-page “Lecture”; a self-contained electronic book that synthesizes an important research or development topic, authored by an expert contributor to the field. We believe that they offer unique value to the reader by providing more analysis and depth than the typical research journal article. They are also more dynamic and convenient than traditional print or digital handbooks, contributed volumes, and monographs. The library and its lectures are organized by series. Each series is managed by a prominent consulting editor. The series editor guides lecture topic and author selection as well as peer review. New series and lectures will be added continuously and existing lectures will be revised as needed. This will make the collection dynamic in a way that has not been achieved with traditional reference or educational products. The Synthesis platform provides the user with access to content in PDF with live links to references and sophisticated search and personalization functions.
