This selected list will direct you to the databases which will serve you in finding journal articles, conference papers and proceedings. Access can additionally be found via Library Search, MELVYL, and from other Subject Guides, and from Finding Online Resources Link on the Library Website. Usually the output is either in reverse chronological order with the most recent information coming up first or can be changed to be retrieved by a relevance ranking. By using the UC eLink icon, one can quickly discover whether UCI offers access to the fulltext content that is referenced. This may be in the form of a pdf, in html, or re-keyed as part of the database. One can usually eMail the list of relevant retrieved citations, or download the articles to oneself. One can also enter or direct them into a Bibliographic Management Software folder. One can also print articles or content.

If access is not available via the UCI Libraries, one can request a copy of the article or paper via ILL using MELVYL REQUEST or re-entering the full citation in the Library Search ILL request form.

The list is an alphabetical arrangement of the database titles - the primary coverage for Computer Science is probably found via Inspec, ACM Digital Library, and the Web of Science.

Computing Information


Heads up researchers! Beginning FY 2020 (October 2019) Federal funders now require ORCID iD registration for all new fellowship, research training, education, and career development proposals.

(See for the original notice.) ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique digital researcher identifiers. These unique identifiers help identify articles written by the same author using various forms of his, her, or their names. This registry also provides a way to link research activities, such as publication and data set creation, to these identifiers. Beyond the federal funding requirements, you’ll be doing the research community a favor by participating – the more the ORCID buy-in, the further along we all get toward the goal of seamless, comprehensive and accurate compilation of individual authors’ works.

Retirement of SciFinder "Classic" - December 31, 2022

  • On December 31, 2022, the SciFinder “classic” interface will be retired for the University of California system. Going forward, we will only have access to SciFinder-n (or SciFindern,

  • Registered SciFinder users should expect to see several emails between now and the end of December reminding you of the change.
  • If you are already using SciFinder-n, there’s nothing you need to do.
  • If you are still using SciFinder “classic,” I do encourage you to begin using SciFinder-n. It’s the same username and password for both systems. If you have the old URL bookmarked, it will redirect to SciFinder-n after December 31.
    • To migrate your saved searches and alerts, login to SciFinder-n, go to Saved and Alerts, then Migrate Alerts & Saved Results. There is more information about migration exceptions within the SciFinder-n help menu (link).
  • CAS has created some good training videos on SciFinder-n ( There are also some upcoming webinars, and I can offer training to classes, research groups, and individuals.
