EBSCO Offers Library & Information Science Source
Library & Information Science Source, considered the definitive resource in the field of library and information science, is now available from EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO). Library & Information Science Source is a full-text resource designed to help librarians and researchers easily find the latest information in a rapidly evolving field of library and information science.
Developed by librarians for librarians, Library & Information Science Source covers librarianship, classification, cataloging, bibliometrics, online information retrieval, information management, and many other library and information science-related areas. Specific coverage includes subjects such as automation, care, and restoration of books, circulation procedures, government aid, internet software, library equipment and supplies, and rare books.
The full text includes more than 460 high-quality journals, nearly 30 full-text monographs and thesauri, plus indexing for hundreds of journals as well as books, research reports, and proceedings. The 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
H.W. Wilson records form the foundation of Library & Information Science Source. For the first time, the entire H.W. Wilson indexing collection of literature in library and information science studies and librarianship is available within a single database. Library & Information Science Source is a combination of all the A&I and full-text records in H.W. Wilson’s Library & Information Science Retrospective: 1905-1983 and Library & Information Science Full Text.
EBSCO and H.W. Wilson merged in 2011. The acquisition led directly to heightening the value and quality of EBSCO and Wilson resources as well as the creation of a line of source products. EBSCO plans to release additional source products focusing on specific subject matter over the next few months.
