Abstracts & Indexes 

All four indexes listed below are available online via Ricker's homepage, http://www.library.uiuc.edu/arx or through the Online Research Resources page, http://openurl.library.uiuc.edu/sfxlcl3/az

Festschriften: A Festschrift is a collection of scholarly essays written in honor of a well known person or institution. Usually Festschriften are cited in bibliographies and footnotes under a shortened title giving only the honored person's name, such as Festschrift Janson. This can make them difficult to located, but researchers need to search diligently for these valuable tools, because Festschriften can provide (1) material which is international in scope, (2) essays on narrow topics that are not published elsewhere, and (3) biographical data on the honored person.
