ACM Books will be priced affordably for institutions to maximize the accessibility of all titles published in the series. All pricing is based on an “ownership model” that provides “archival rights” for customers purchasing the entire collection of ACM Books with the ability to locally host individual titles for internal use, at the discretion of the purchasing institution.

ACM Books has launched Collection I, consisting of 25 books published across a wide range of topics in computer science. When an institution purchases Collection I, access will be turned on in the ACM Digital library for all books published as of that date in Collection I. As new titles are published inside the ACM Digital Library, those titles will be accessible to all users within the institution’s IP authenticated domain.

For Individuals, ACM Books titles are available for individual purchase via Morgan & Claypool Publishers and other popular online retailers.

For Academic Institutions, pricing is based on several factors, including:

  • Annual list pricing for each collection in the ACM Books series
  • ACM DL Tiering based on size and number of students and faculty at participating institutions
  • Participation in various academic library consortia
  • Economic discounts based on the 2012 World Bank List of Economies
  • Pre-publication discounts based on orders received by January 31, 2014
