This databases is available FREE to any library - compliments of EBSCO. Customers currently subscribing to other EBSCOhost databases may elect to have LISTA added to their EBSCOhost profile.
Hundreds of Indexes
LISTA indexes more than 580 core journals, nearly 50 priority journals, and nearly 125 selective journals; plus books, research reports and proceedings. Coverage in the database extends back as far as the mid-1960s. It is EBSCO's intention to provide access to LISTA on a continual basis at www.libraryresearch.com.
Quality Author Information
The thesauri in both Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts databases include 6,800 terms, 2,700 of which are preferred terms. The database also includes author profiles. Customers can review information on 5,000 of the frequently indexed authors in LISTA, such as which subject terms are most commonly applied to their articles, and in which publications the author has been published.
This may be the best gift that library and information professionals ever received from commercial information services. LISTA is an open-access mega indexing/abstracting database on its own.– Peter Jacso, Peter's Digital Reference Shelf
