We are pleased to announce that the library now has access to the ACM Digital Library. This is the premier source for academic content related to the computer sciences.
When EBSCO merged with H.W. Wilson in 2011, the two companies merged their various education databases into one giant resource - Education Source. Education Source combines the content of databases such as Education Full Text, Education Research Complete, and many more into one database for easier searching. Education Source will allow you to find education research materials much more quickly.
