The primary goal of the ACM Books series is to provide a broad distribution outlet for book authors in the computing community. Pricing the series so that it is affordable to ACM members and institutions around the world is a priority for ACM Books.
While individual titles in the series will be available for purchase through the most popular book and e-book retailers, the most affordable way for individual readers in the computing community to get access to all of the books published in the series is either through the heavily discounted ACM Membership pricing option ($29 annual price for professional members and $10 annual price for student members).
Another option is to make a purchase recommendation to your institution. Bundled pricing for academic, government, and corporate institutions makes it possible for all individual users within their institutions to have free and unrestricted access to all titles published in the ACM Books series. To make such a recommendation, please contact your institution’s librarian or information manager.
