Elsevier Legacy Book Titles

Nearly all Elsevier books available to ACM members can be accessed via ScienceDirect. However, a number of popular "legacy" titles are not in ScienceDirect but can still be accessed through the ACM Digital Library. They are listed on this page (below and in the right sidebar). A larger number of titles will only be available through August 1, 2017 and can be accessed through this temporary catalog. To download any of these legacy in PDF format, click on them and enter your ACM Web Account username and password in the ACM Digital Library.
