Library Literature and Information Science is a bibliographic database that indexes over 410 library and information science periodicals published internationally. It also covers books, chapters within books, library school theses, and pamphlets. In 2011, the H. W. Wilson Company, the firm that created the index, sold it to EBSCO Publishing along with other H.W. Wilson indexes and databases.[1]


Bibliographical indexing from 1984 to present. Full-text coverage from 1997, but start date varies for each publication.
