Synthesis Digital Library of Engineering and Computer Science provides full-text access to an online collection of several hundred “born-digital” books in engineering and computer science. The books in the collection are described as 50- to 100-page lectures, which synthesize important research and development topics and are written by experts in the field.
Subject areas currently covered include: artificial intelligence/machine learning; biomedical engineering; communication networks; communications; computational electromagnetics; computer architecture; computer graphics and animation; computer science; control, robotics, and automation; digital circuits and systems; electrical engineering; engineers, technology, and society; environmental science and engineering; image, video, and multimedia processing; information security, privacy, and trust; mobile and pervasive computing; RF/microwaves; signal processing; solid state materials and devices, and speech and audio processing.
Tips for using Synthesis
Enter your terms in the Quick Search box. In the results list, items with a green check in the left column are available full-text by clicking on PDF. Use ILLiad (interlibrary loan) to request items that don’t have a green check.
Adopt a Synthesis Title as a Textbook
We encourage faculty to consider adopting a Synthesis e-text as a required or recommended course text to list and link to from your course pages within UBlearns. We can help you identify potential titles. Contact either Jill Hackenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org or Nancy Schiller at email@example.com.
Note: When listing and linking to a Synthesis title, in order to ensure that students connecting to it from off-campus will get access, be sure to add http://gate.lib.buffalo.edu/login?url= before the URL for the e-book; for example: http://gate.lib.buffalo.edu/login?url=http://www.morganclaypool.com/doi/abs/10.2200/S00274ED1V01Y201006HLT007.
