WilsonWeb Adds Short Story Index Retrospective: 1915–1983

H.W. Wilson ( announced Short Story Index Retrospective: 1915–1983, a new tool to help users find short stories from among more than 150,000 published in the U.S., England, and Canada dating from the 1830s to the 1980s. The index provides access by author, title, and publication, as well as topics, themes, locales, genre, and people (individuals, ethnicities, or professions).

The database brings precise electronic searching to short fiction that would be otherwise just "hidden away." Sources include 350 periodicals and collections of short stories—from the golden age of short fiction in magazines through the most celebrated contemporary literary publications. Entries feature all the bibliographic information needed to find the actual story, plus links to other works by the author and other stories in the source collection. WilsonWeb’s library holdings indicator (linked to the library’s OPAC) lets users know if they’ll find cited publications on the shelves, and WilsonLink OpenURL technology links to full-text stories on any of the library’s other OpenURL-compliant reference sources, including free websites.

Short Story Index Retrospective brings together decades of content from Wilson’s Short Story Index. The databases search seamlessly in combination, offering access to more than 170 years of data. The new database is one of 16 now in the Wilson Retrospective Collection, which also includes indexes in art, applied science, social science, education, biography, business, law, library and information science, and the humanities. Other retrospective databases covering literature include Book Review Digest Retrospective, Humanities Index Retrospective, Readers’ Guide Retrospective, and the upcoming Essay & General Literature Index Retrospective.
