This guide contains links to significant computer science resources on the Internet. It is based on the {computer science} resource listing available as a subject guide on the University at Albany, University Libraries home page. There are, however, four differences:

The guide is divided into nine subject categories which are self-explanatory with the exception of Starting Points. Starting Points are internet subject guides that cover sub-disciplines of computer science like artificial intelligence, programming languages, and concurrency. Their purpose is to provide an organized, subject approach to internet resources for that sub-discipline.

Several strategies were used to collect the sites for this guide. The following subjects guides were perused and were most helpful:

{InterNIC Academic Guide to the Internet - Computer & Info Sciences}
{The WWW Virtual Library - Computing}
{Yahoo! - Science: Computer Science}
{University of Waterloo Electronic Library - Computer Science}

Furthermore, the Ultraseek search engine was used with the following search strategy:

+title:"computer science" +resources.
In addition, other keywords like artificial intelligence, programming languages, and software engineering were substituted for "computer science" in this strategy. Finally, listservs, such as SLA-PAM, were monitored for relevant resources.
