The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) Library has partnered with EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) for continued access to the online data records of the American Bibliography of Slavic and East European Studies™, also known as ABSEES Online. The bibliography of online records dating back to 1990, is now on the EBSCOhost® interface under the terms of an exclusive licensing agreement. EBSCO provides for the marketing as well as distributing the content as part of the agreement.
ABSEES subscribers benefit from the easy access offered by the new EBSCOhost interface as well as the innovative and up-to-date technology that underlies all of the EBSCO product line. The agreement allows ABSEES staff of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to focus on adding the best current content to the database while also digitizing older records dating back to 1956. As a result, ABSEES will offer more comprehensive access to research on American titles in Slavic and East European Studies.
ABSEES is based at the UIUC Library and maintained by editors located there and by other contributing editors at research institutions throughout the U.S. The UIUC Library, with more than 10 million volumes, is the largest public university library in the world and home to the Slavic and East European Library, which houses one of the largest collections of its kind in the country.
