Unparalleled Coverage

Developed by librarians through a merger of high-quality databases from EBSCO and H.W. Wilson, Library & Information Science Source is the most complete resource for librarians and librarian studies.

Library & Information Science Source provides comprehensive coverage of the history of library studies as well as access to author profiles including information on more than 5,200 of the most-frequently indexed authors—such as which subject terms are most commonly applied to their articles, and in which publications the author has been published.

The Advanced Search screen takes most of the guessing out of complicated searching for savvy users, and the simple layout makes communicating available options to new users a breeze.
