New interface for Library Lit

Feb 2, 2012

Library Literature & Information Science Full Text, and Library Literature & Information Science Retrospective, are now available on the EbscoHost platform with all the familiar features of the Ebsco search interface.  The WilsonWeb interface to Library Lit is no longer available.

Ebsco bought the H.W. Wilson company last year.  Migrating Library Lit to the EbscoHost platform is only the first step of the merger.  Later this year, Ebsco will blend Library Lit with its own database, Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts (LISTA), to form a new LIS full text database called Library & Information Science Source.  In the meantime, you can choose to search both databases simultaneously in EbscoHost. 

For guidance in searching Library Lit, please consult the LibGuide, LIS--Basic Information Sources–Articles.
