Computer Science & Electrical Engineering: Books and Dictionaries

Computer Science and Electrical Engineering Books @ UCSD

We have an extensive collection of books (print and ebooks) that cover engineering, mathematics, physical sciences, and related disciplines.

UC Library Search

UC Library Search, accessible from the search box on the library's homepage, helps you locate books, film, music, maps, and various other materials at the UC San Diego Library and beyond. It also contains a limited number of online journal and newspaper articles. You may search by keyword, title, and author, and filter your search to what is available online, or peer-reviewed articles. You can also place an interlibrary loan request through UC Library Search for materials at other UC campuses or libraries worldwide using your Single Sign-On credentials.

UC Library Search does not include all the content to which the Library subscribes. To extend your search for articles and research papers AND to fully use advanced features (Cited by, Institution search, controlled subject search)  use databases like Web of Science or INSPEC or MathSciNet or ACM Guide to Computing Literature or SciFinder.

The Roger and Melvyl catalogs were retired on July 27, 2021.

Recommend a Purchase

If UCSD Library doesn't own a book or journal or you'd like to suggest the library buy an e-book, please fill out the purchase suggestion form or contact me.

For delivery of an article or book or report from another university library or recreational books from the public libraries - use Circuit (borrow books from San Diego area libraries) or Interlibrary loan.  Circuit requesting of books is the fastest.

New books & e-books

Search for a subject or author or keyword in UC Library search - advanced search and choose UC San Diego Library Catalog.
Then refine your results to books with Publication Date => 2022 (or 2023).  Check the e-book publishers sites using strategy outlines in the e-books guide  Contact me if you cannot find a newer book.


E-Book Collections

These are the main e-book collections (not single titles) of interest to computer science & electrical engineering researchers. Unless otherwise specified, books in these collections are also in the UCSD Libraries catalog, though the most recently published ones are generally available online 1-3 months before appearing in our catalog.
