Basic Searching the Guide vs. the Full-Text • • On the Digital Library main page, type your word or phrase into the text box. The search engine will search on each word individually as well as on the whole phrase. From the basic search box, you may put quotations (" ") around the phrase to search the exact phrase to return a narrower list of results. Search results will automatically default to results retrieved from the full-text ACM collection. From this point users may choose to expand their search to include the bibliographic citation content by selecting “Expand Your Search to The ACM Guide to Computing Literature” link. There are now over 2, 515, 325 publication records indexed in the database. The full-text Database now includes 433, 579 full-text records available for download in the DL. The full-text ACM content is designated by the blue ACM diamond icon appearing next to the publication title In the full-text view there will be some publications that do not include the ACM diamond. This is the hosted fulltext publications included from select publishers. Searching a specific term in the Guide will return both the full-text and citation content in the search results. © 2016 Association for Computing Machinery

Advanced Search • On the Advanced Search screen, customize your search by specifying various field operators such as a key word or phrase, author, ISBN/ISSN, Publication Year; or ACM Computing Classification (CCS) term. Use these fields independently or combine them. • If a user does not have a specific search in mind, they may conduct a basic “keyword” search from the main DL page and use the “Refine Your Search” options located on the left of the screen: -- Refine by People -- Refine by Publications -- Refine by Conferences -- Refine by Publication Year The Basic and Advanced Search tools do not currently include a feature that would allow users to search “Top Papers”. This is possible with the DL platform’s Analytics Tools utilized in our Author Profile and Institutional Profile P ages. © 2016 Association for Computing Machinery

Free ACM Web Account • • ACM users may create a free web account to personalize how they use the ACM DL A free ACM Web account allows users to: – Save searches – Set up table of contents (or TOC) alerts – Create virtual binders The TOC alert service sends an email alert when a new issue of an ACM journal, magazine, newsletter or proceedings has been posted in the DL. To sign up, log in on the DL main page, and locate the desired publication. You will find the TOC Service icons under the Tools and Resources box located on the right of the main citation box. The virtual binder allows members to create and name their own personal folders where they can store articles for future reference. Personal binders can be shared with other users. Access to the full-text of articles is controlled independently of the binders. © 2016 Association for Computing Machinery

Author Profile Pages • • • To find an Author Profile Page you may do a specific search for an author or simply select the name of an author for any publication listed from your returned search. Search Example: Moshe Vardi Each Author Profile Page provides an author’s complete publication history, organizational affiliations and citation counts The gray box at the left of the screen indicates everything the author themselves may edit including their pictures, URL to the author’s own homepage, email address, etc. All other information included on the author page is generated dynamically from extracting the data from the actual publications and articles (such as colleague and institution affiliations) The following Bibliometrics data is included on every author’s page detailing the citations for an author’s entire publication history: -- Publication Years -- Publication Count -- Citation Count -- Available for download For a complete explanation of all terms and what data is actually captured users may select the “Bibliometrics” link located at the top right of the page. © 2016 Association for Computing Machinery

Institutional Profile Pages • • The Institutional Profile Page is assembled by gathering all of the publication data from articles that includes at least one author affiliated who is affiliated with that institution at the time of publication. The data captured on the Institutional Profile page is similar to that included on the Author Profile Pages: Publication Years, Publications Count, Citations Count. The following additional bibliometrics are also included: -- Downloads (6 weeks) -- Downloads (12 months) -- Downloads (cumulative) -- Average downloads per article The Institutional Profile Page also shows what cutting-edge topics or subject areas or disciplines on which a specific institution is publishing. The subject terms are listed in various fonts to indicate how frequently an institution is publishing in a particular area. The larger the font, the more publications the institution is outputting in this area. The smaller the font indicates the institution is publishing fewer articles or publication content in this discipline © 2016 Association for Computing Machinery

Understanding ACM DL Usage Statistics • ACM provides Monthly COUNTER Compliant Usage Statistics through the Scholarly i. Q portal at http: //acmreports. org. COUNTER Compliant reports apply a general standard that works to reduce the potential “inflationary effects” automated search engines or robots may have on an institution’s usage statistics. The following COUNTER Reports are currently available: o COUNTER JR 1 Report (Number of Successful Full-Text Article Requests by Month and Journal) o COUNTER JR 1 GOA (Number of Successful Gold Open Access Full-Text Article Requests by Month and Journal o COUNTER JR 4 Report (Total Searches Run by Month and Service) o Journal Report 5 (JR 5) Number of Successful Full-Text Article Requests by Year-of-Publication and Journal o COUNTER BR 1 Report Number of Successful Title Requests by Month and Title (Previously included download counts for all Proceedings content only, which is now listed under the JR 1 report) • Custom Usage Reports are also available. These reports adhere to COUNTER standards with regards to how online usage statistics are calculated. However, these are not official COUNTER report offerings : o Top Sheet Summary: Overall Statistics o Affiliated Publications: Article Requests by Month and Affiliation o Downloads: Download Requests by Month and Type o Article Titles: Article Requests by Month and Title o IPs: Number of Successful Page Views by Month and IP © 2016 Association for Computing Machinery
