Developed by librarians from a merger of high-quality databases from EBSCO Publishing and H.W. Wilson, and including many unique sources that were never previously available, this database provides full-text coverage and high-quality indexing to help librarians and researchers to keep pace with the latest trends in a rapidly evolving field of library and information science.
Containing English and foreign-language periodicals, journals, conference proceedings, pamphlets, library school theses and books, this database encompasses subjects such as librarianship, classification, cataloging, bibliometrics, online information retrieval and information management. In addition, Library & Information Science Source provides comprehensive coverage of the history of library studies.
This database also provides access to author profiles—including information on 5,000 of the most-frequently indexed authors—such as which subject terms are most commonly applied to their articles, and in which publications the author has been published.
Advanced Search, with its elegantly laid-out tool set for crafting very precise search strategies, gives the user great control over the whole search process.– Library Journal
