H.W. Wilson to Introduce Retrospective Indexes

H.W. Wilson announced that a new reference resource will debut in January. The company claims that it is "the most wide-ranging and deepest retrospective index of library and information science articles available." Library Literature & Information Science Retrospective: 1905-1983 ( will be offered exclusively on WilsonWeb. The resource will provide coverage of more than 1,200 key periodicals with citations to more than 500,000 articles. The database will also include full texts (HTML plus PDF page images) from some 70 years of Wilson Library Bulletin (the trade magazine for librarians, founded 1914), indexing from Library Work (1905-1911), plus citations to book reviews, books, book chapters, and library school theses.

Extensive annotations (up to several hundreds of words) detail the content of articles from a diverse range of periodicals. Analytic records provide chapter-level access (by subject and author) to the contents of books, conference proceedings, and essay collections. The database is also strong on international coverage, encompassing library science publishing in Europe, Russia, China, India, Australia, and Latin America. Users can acquire the actual articles with WilsonLink SFX-powered technology, which can link to the full texts available in other OpenURL-compatible databases, to a library's OPAC for holdings information, and to auto-completion of interlibrary loan forms.

The company plans to introduce eight more retrospective indexes, including Applied Science & Technology Retrospective: 1913-1983 later in 2007.
