Need Library or Info Sci. Studies? See LISA

The Libraries newest acquisition might be the resource some of the best librarians and budding information science scholars consult to have their professional questions answered.

Library and Information Science Abstracts (LISA) is a bibliographic database that provides indexing and abstracting services for periodicals, individual papers published in major English language conference proceedings, book reviews, and selected research report series in the fields of librarianship, information science, online retrieval, new information technologies, and publishing. Coverage is international in scope and began in 1969. LISA also includes indexing and abstracting, beginning with 1981, for unpublished academic and institutional research from the Current Research in Library and Information Science Database.

Users can access LISA from the front page of the Libraries website, either through IRIS or by following the path Indexes & Databases / Social Sciences & Law / Library & Information Science.
