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.
