IEEE eLearning Library

The IEEE eLearning Library is an online collection of short courses and conference workshops. It is composed of courses in core and emerging technologies, ranging from 1-3 hours in length. Each course was developed and peer-reviewed by subject experts and awards continuing education units (CEU) or professional development hours (PDH) upon successful completion. The courses can be found in IEEE Xplore and accessed via the IEEE Learning Management System (LMS). (20/10/10)

The Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL)

CSDL covers an overlapping but in some cases different set of materials than those found in IEL. Please remember that IEL includes the publications that appear in our printed packages namely, ASPP and the POPs.  Basically, CSDL, produced by the IEEE Computer Society, includes conferences that are not included in the POPs program and therefore are not considered part of the IEL.

Update 24/7/06:
The IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL) provides:
nbsp;  Web access to 23 IEEE Computer Society periodicals from 1988 forward
   Includes over 1,700 conference proceedings from 1995 forward
   Anniversary-basis or calendar-year subscriptions
   Powered by the CSLSP-e electronic delivery platform on
   Full-text, searchable HTML format plus PDF
   IP authentication: Every user at your site can access CSLSP-e articles
   No limit on concurrent users
   Electronic access in advance of the periodicals print publications

Further details are available at:  then click on the "Digital Library" link at the top left side of page

The IEEE Computer Society Digital Library price for a 12 month subscription, with unlimited concurrent users is US$14,795
* Price valid until 30th November  2006.

Update 15/10/02
For 2003, CSDL costs a member approx. $110 US/year. Libraries may subscribe for 2003 for $12,395 US, with discounted consortium rates available.

  • CSDL hosts Computer Society (CS) journal publications starting from 1988 (versus 1988 for IEL) except for IEEE Annals of the History of Computing, which goes back to Volume 1 (published in 1979).
  • CSDL hosts CS conference proceedings starting from 1995 *(versus 1988 for IEL).
  • For 2003, CSDL is limited to 20 Computer Society magazines and transactions *(versus over 105 for IEL, including the 20 of CSDL.

Future - CSDL will be exchanging digital library metadata with the ACM. Each digital library will provide links to the other's site.
Our digital library is a subset of the larger IEEE packages, but you may have members who are offering only undergraduate programs in computer science or whose budgets can't afford the larger IEEE packages.

Update 11/8/00
- CSDL does not cover any IEEE Standards
- CSDL does not cover any IEE publications (Journals, Conferences, Colloquia)
- CSDL displays citation information with abstracts FOR FREE TO ALL WEB SURFERS
*(versus TOCs only for non-members; citations with abstracts limited to subscribers and IEEE members with web accounts)
- CSDL PDF quality is better: usually distilled from PostScript(PS); Magazines usually in color
*(versus only the last 18 months-or-so distilled from PS, almost nothing in color, but we're working to replace the old PDFs with good PS PDFs in IEL)
- Timeliness: issues appear in CSDL first, before they reach IEL for processing and INSPEC for Indexing
*(IEL must wait for CS to push files to us for processing after CSDL processing complete)
- Search functions: IEL includes (soon) searchable HTML versions of document   *(versus CSDL's searchable distilled PS PDF files)
- Future: IEL will include reference linking

"IEEE does not provide trials for Draft Standards. The logic is that as it’s only available to IEL subscribers, and is presented the same way as the IEEE Standards package, a trial would be overkill."

WCAG compliance: IEEE compliance for the WCAG 2.0 Level A and Section 508 (16/7/15)


COUNTER reports 1-5 are available, and additional reports for IEEE Conferences, Standards and eBooks. Usage reports are available via:  An account is created for each new subscription. (16/7/15)

COUNTER-compliant usage reports. (24/1/06) IEEE is pleased to announce that COUNTER-compliant usage reports will be available soon. Usage statistics for all IEEE online subscription packages for January 2006 forward will be delivered on a new COUNTER-compliant website. IEEE has hired a third-party vendor, MPS/IBM, to provide COUNTER-compliant reporting. MPS/IBM will manage the service and host the COUNTER reports which will be available through an improved online interface.
The same username and password that allows you access the existing IEEE usage site at will authenticate you at the new site.  The URL and additional information will be sent to you in February when the first COUNTER-compliant statistics are available. IEEE has posted December 2005 usage reports at This will be our final update to this site, however IEEE will continue to maintain the site throughout 2006.
