Computer Science


Further to Quebec government and university directives, McGill campuses are currently closed. As a result, all library branches are closed until further notice. Library staff will continue to provide virtual reference during service hours. I will also be available via email and virtual consultation. For more information about the closure, please visit our COVID -19 | Library Closure & Service Disruptions FAQ.

Welcome to Computer Science subject guide

This subject guide recommends useful resources for research in the area of computer science. They are categorized by the type of material. Please use the tabs on the left menu to explore these resources. Feel free to contact me if you need some assistance. I am available for one-on-one consultation. 

If the Library doesn’t have the articles or books that you need, you may request them through COLOMBO (InterLibrary Loan) or email me the suggestion. We may be able to purchase a copy for the Library.

If you need to access McGill Library’s electronic resources, such as e-books, e-journals or article databases from off-campus, you need to log into EZproxy or VPN.
