Nov 11: Books24x7 and the Cormen et al Book
I am passing on some information from Carol Hutchins, our head librarian at Courant's Library:
"The entire text of the Cormen, Leisenson, Rivest, Stein book (2nd Edition) is now online in the Book24x7 service, an online database for books of the ilk seen at Barnes&Noble, etc. Users of the Book24x7 site are subject to stated terms and condition. The service is an online reference, NOT a substitute for getting a hardcopy (they give you an option to buy online). For instance, downloading of entire books is not allowed, and service cutoff will happen with excessive downloads."
Here is a possible use for our class: some of you have a different version of the Cormen book (Asian version or Edition 1). In that case, you may just need to lookup the actual chapter or pages in your version that correspond to the Official Edition. Or, just to copy a problem assigned in homework.
The main website is http://www.books24x7.com. Note that NYU has an agreement with Books24x7 ($10K/year). To use this service, use the following URL http://library.books24x7.com/ from any NYU computer. I would be happy to post your experience about this service. For your convenience, I added this direct link to the CLRS book on our class webpage:
