Basic Article and Book Resources for Global and Regional LIS Topics

LIS Databases

  • LISS (EBSCO): Covers all LIS topics, with substantial international journal and non-English coverage.
  • LISA (Proquest): Has a narrower range of indexed journals, but has substantial indexing of international library issues and journals in particular, including significant amounts of related material not covered in LISS.
