Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts (LISTA) is an index of scholarship in library and information science. It includes citations, indexing, and abstracts for journal articles, books, research reports, and conference proceedings. Subjects covered include librarianship, classification, cataloging, bibliometrics, information management, online information retrieval, and more.

This version of LISTA, available through EBSCOhost, includes “Get It @ R” links to full text available through Rutgers, and it allows cross-searching with other EBSCOhost databases. There is also a free publically accessible version of LISTA.

LISTA is the electronic counterpart and continuation of the print publications Information Science & Technology Abstracts (ISTA) and its predecessor, Information Science Abstracts.
