As a PhD student in computer science, conference proceedings are very important to my work. I am able to get most of what I need through IEEE and ACM subscriptions. My only problem is with the conference proceedings published by Springer. These are very important but I am not able to access them because Concordia does not have a subscription.
Thank you for this suggestion. A subscription to the collection you are referring to — Springer Link e-books — is currently being seriously considered by the Libraries. In the meantime, please feel free to contact us with your email address so that we can suggest alternative options for access, such as an Interlibrary Loan request for the print version of some of these proceedings.
