Wilson's Bibliographic Index Becomes Bibliographic Index Plus

Oct 12, 2004

H.W. Wilson's Bibliographic Index has now become Bibliographic Index Plus, featuring indexing of more than 350,000 bibliographies across a range of disciplines, plus nearly 100,000 full text bibliographies. Bibliographies included are published in English, German, Dutch, and the Scandinavian, Slavic, and Romance languages (including some 2,300 bibliographies published in Spanish). The database draws its content from ongoing coverage of periodicals and books. Bibliographic essays, literature reviews, serial bibliographies, and bibliographies appearing as regular features are among the resources cited. Content can be searched by subject headings (based on Library of Congress Subject Headings), keyword, source publication, author, date, or other options. The WilsonWeb library holdings indicator, linked to the library's OPAC, is designed to let users know if they will find cited sources on their library's shelves. When the article is unavailable, WilsonLink SFX-powered database-linking software offers a supplemental search of other open-URL compliant resources in the library. Administrators can also add custom links on WilsonWeb, directing users to document delivery or interlibrary loan options.
