EBSCO Publishing Adds Databases

EBSCO Publishing recently announced a number of new database additions. It has acquired Computer Literature Index (CLI) from Applied Computer Research, Inc. The company plans to make the database available via EBSCOhost by fall 2003. CLI offers indexing and abstracts for nearly 300 computer-related trade publications, business magazines and journals, and other reference sources, dating back to 1996. EBSCO plans to extend the archive back to 1984 and enhance the abstracts.

EBSCO Publishing also announced it will distribute the OCLC PAIS International database online through EBSCOhost. The PAIS International database provides global coverage of public affairs and world issues, with an emphasis on practical information. It includes references to more than 514,000 journal articles, books, government documents, statistical directories, gray literature, research reports, Internet documents, conference reports, and other sources from more than 120 countries. In addition, 4,200 Web sites are included in PAIS International. EBSCO plans to release this database in early 2004.

H.W. Wilson will also make 11 more of its databases available soon to libraries via EBSCOhost, bringing the total number of Wilson databases available on EBSCOhost to 17. The full range of Wilson databases—over 50 in all—continue to be available through the recently released WilsonWeb platform.
