Computer Science : For Faculty and Instructors

This guide provides a general overview of research resources in Computer Science, Gaming, Information Security; which includes online databases, journals, books, websites & other resources, finding tools and news.


Teaching and instruction is the foundation of what we do at Northeastern University Libraries. We offer course support on research skills and strategies, specific databases and research tools, citation management, and peer review and other library- or research-focused topics.

We've found that library instruction sessions are most effective when they meet these criteria:

  • the session is related to a specific assignment or research need
  • students have research topics in mind and are familiar with assignment requirements
  • the session is timed for when students will realistically begin their research
  • the session is mandatory for students and occurs during regular class time
  • the instructor has specific goals or learning outcomes in mind for the session

For more information about setting up a library instruction session, or to talk about how we can most effectively work with your class, please contact us or see the Instruction Request page on the library website.

Research Consultations and Citation Management

We are available to work directly with faculty and researchers in person, over email, or virtually. If you'd like help with your research project, you can schedule an appointment with Rachel, Robert, or another member of our library team.

We also provide consultation on citation management for research projects at any level and can help students and faculty identify strategies and tools to organize references and successfully produce bibliographies.
