Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts (LISTA)

LISTA indexes and abstracts more than 600 periodicals plus books, research reports, and proceedings covering librarianship, classification, cataloging, bibliometrics, online information retrieval, and information management. Overlaps with Library Literature and LISA, but provides coverage further back as well as more coverage of some technical areas. While access is freely available, UW Madison patrons will see additional full-text links in the licensed version. (Updated regularly)
