Are databases asking you for a password? Are you off-campus?

The Library now uses OpenAthens as a proxy server!

Be sure to use a library provided link to the database you wish to use. You should be prompted for your Juniata username and password. After entering those you will be authenticated as a Juniata user for the remainder of your browser session.

For more details see the Off Campus Access guide

Welcome to the Computer Science & IT Research Guide! 

The purpose of a Research Guide is to help get you started on your research projects. On this page, you will find our librarian's recommendations for best resources for your subject. This includes relevant resources, such as specific Databases, citation format guidance, search tips, and contact information of the subject librarian.

Require further assistance? Reach out to your subject librarian! We are always happy to help. 

Unsure of which Databases to use for Computer Science & IT?

Here is where we recommend starting:

arXiv (Cornell University) is a highly-automated electronic archive and distribution server for research articles. Covered areas include physics, mathematics, computer science, nonlinear sciences, quantitative biology, quantitative finance, statistics, electrical engineering and systems science, and economics.

Communication & Mass Media Complete  

Communication & Mass Media Complete (CMMC) is a robust communication studies database. It provides full-text, indexing and abstracts for many top communication journals covering all related disciplines, including media studies, linguistics, rhetoric and discourse.

Just Getting Started?

Be sure to search our library catalog! (The search bar to our catalog is located at the top of each page of our website!) Our physical collection consists of 70,000 physical books and we have 700,000 eBooks available! This does not include other resources such as articles, journals, videos, and more!
