ACM Digital Library

The Association for computing machinery - an old lady in the field of computer science.

It has a vast Digital Library which I have access to through Student/University licenses and contains many valuable papers and covers many interesting topics.

But its not free, actually as a non-student you have to pay 200 Dollars per year (Membership plus access). So, where's the "Free the ACM library" movement? Let's pretend it is right here, I support it. Personally I think, it would be a great value to everybody to have it available as free resource.

Of course somebody has to finance the review system and so on, but perhaps there is a solution to that? Wikipedia works too!

Anyways, its a great library, that I can confirm, could be worth its 200 dollars for a software company and like.
