ACM, “the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society,” recently added a new search technology to its digital library. This new technology allows users to refine search results by keyword, people, publications, or conferences by selecting from links along the left side of the search results. Additionally, users can discover related journals, magazines, interest groups, or meetings by clicking the tabs along the top of search results. To learn more about this new release, you can read the press release or the information page. And for those interested in the database technology itself, you can begin your research about the Endeca Information Access Platform here.
Engineering Village has also made some small changes to their online resources by updating the “Ask an Expert” page to facilitate finding the best expert and increasing the “Expert Search” character limit to 8,000.
