Computer Science

Computer Science touches virtually every aspect of human endeavor. Its impact on society is seen in the proliferation of computers, information systems, game systems, web browsers, search engines, computerization  and automation of automobiles, and all the wonderful application programs that have been developed to make computers more productive and easier to use.

The library has obtained a number of magazines available for viewing online through Flipster, as well as subscriptions to Science (a highly requested magazine) and Nature. Flip through these magazines using the links above! 

Computer Science Podcasts


Software Engineering Radio is a podcast targeted at the professional software developer. The goal is to be a lasting educational resource, not a newscast. Three to four times per month, we publish a new episode talking to experts from the software engineering world about the full range of topics that matter to professional developers.

undefinedIn Security Now, Leo Laporte and I spend somewhat shy of 2 hours each week discussing important issues of personal computer security. Sometimes we'll talk about long-standing problems, concerns, or solutions. Either way, every week we endeavor to produce something interesting and important for every personal computer user. 


Linux Action Show is the world's #1 Linux podcast. A weekly show that covers the best in the open source and Linux world. Get a solid dose of Linux, gadgets, howto, reviews, and news every week!


Spark is an ongoing conversation about our rapidly changing world. Along with you, host Nora Young explores how technology, innovation and design affects our lives.
