LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 22 May, 2012 – The IEEE Computer Society is offering a free mobile application that will let subscribers to the Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL) use their iPads to access the largest and most dynamic collection of digitized computing knowledge in the world.
The IEEE Computer Society CSDL app brings new functionality to the renowned digital library, which provides online access to more than 425,000 articles from 27 peer-reviewed magazines and journals and more than 4,100 conference publications with the latest information on topics such as cloud computing, security & privacy, data mining, augmented reality.
