Literature Searches
To learn about basic, well understood ideas
– Textbooks are ideal if you can find them
– Search for “tutorial” or “survey” papers
Start by searching the internet
– Often researchers will put their latest projects and papers on their websites
– You can get ideas of what to search for next
– However, giving a citation to a website is not acceptable; it must be a book, journal or conference
To find specific papers
– CSM has electronic subscription to many journals, including all the IEEE journals. Go to the library website (you must be on campus or using vpn to log in)
– Often Google Scholar will find it somewhere on the web
– I have a subscription to the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library ( which has many conference papers
– is also pretty good
