The IEEE CSDL and the California Digital Library (CDL) have agreed to offer an experiment allowing users to connect to individual articles in journals produced by the IEEE Computer Society.  This experiment ends December 31, 1998.

The CSDL offers its full-text online collection of all issues of 18 periodicals produced by the Computer Society from January 1995 through the present.  The titles are Computer, IEEE Annals of the History of Computing, IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications, IEEE Computational Science & Engineering, IEEE Concurrency, IEEE Design & Test of Computers, IEEE Intelligent Systems, IEEE Internet Computing, IEEE Micro, IEEE MultiMedia, IEEE Software, IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE Transactions on Knowledge & Data Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Parallel & Distributed Computing, IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis & Machine Intelligence, IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, and IEEE Transactions on Visualization & Computer Graphics.

IEEE CS periodical issues produced in 1995 and 1996 are posted in the CSDL in HTML format. Issues produced since January 1997 are posted in the CSDL in both HTML and PDF formats.

Article-level links are in Melvyl Web records for these journals in addition to the “Article image” links that are already available in the ongoing IEEE/UC joint project.

Both the IEEE CS and CDL will keep each other up to date on access methods and usage statistics (e.g., which periodicals are accessed most frequently, which years are accessed, and the number of “visits” and individual document requests made) as they are identified and collected.

Continuation of the project into 1999 is under discussion.
