ACM offers its members a vast array of IT information resources, including the ACM Portal, which includes over 1.2 million pages of text, the Online Guide to Computing Literature (with 750,000 bibliographic citations extending far beyond ACM's own literature), the Online Computing Reviews Service, customized personal services, and more.

ACM SIGPLAN explores programming language concepts and tools, focusing on design, implementation, and efficient use. Its members are programming language users, developers, implementers, theoreticians, researchers, and educators. The monthly newsletter "ACM SIGPLAN Notices" publishes several conference proceedings issues, regular columns and technical correspondence. This SIG offers an additional newsletter (FORTRAN Forum), on a subscription only basis. SIGPLAN sponsors four major annual conferences: the OOPSLA conference in object-oriented technology, the Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI), the major professional conference in the field; the Symposium on Principle of Programming Languages (POPL), and the International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP), held periodically in Europe.
