LIS 506 and library-based research


Your assignments for LIS 506, Youth Services Librarianship, require you to investigate topics using sources beyond the assigned readings.  This LibGuide spotlights key resources to facilitate your search for information.  See below for links and descriptions of general tools for finding articles and books.  Use the tabs above to learn more about specialized sources in LIS, education, and children's literature, as well as sources about grants.



Useful general links

LIS Virtual Library

On the LIS Virtual LIbrary website, you can find links to recommended websites on various topics, and links to key online information sources such as encyclopedias and organizations.  Also look here for practical information on librarian office hours and contacts.

Social Sciences, Health, and Education Library

On the SSHEL website, you can find research guides and a great set of links to children's literature resources in the School Collection (or S-Collection).

Center for Children's Books

On the CCB website, you can find a substantive research guide, topical annotated bibliographies of books for young readers, and other information about children's and young adult literature.

Library Gateway

The Library Gateway brings together many tools for information seekers, including:

Easy Search

Easy Search is a one-stop search tool for the University's print collections, major online resources, and selected open access web content.  It's good for searching by topic.  But Easy Search does NOT cover LIS-specific indexes.

Journal and Article Locator

This tool is a short cut to finding known items in the Library's print and digital collections.

"LIS - Basic Information Sources - Articles"  (LibGuide) 

Formatted like the guide you're using right now, this LibGuide provides an overview of the three major journal indexes in library and information science:  Library Literature & Information Science Full Text (Library Lit); Library & Information Science Abstracts (LISA); and Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts (LISTA).  It also describes web search tools (Google Scholar and Scirus) and digital repositories.  Many search tips are provided.

Comparison of LISS, LISA, and INSPEC

This chart compares three key databases within the LIS-discipline on a number of factors including content coverage, date coverage, search features, and more.
