Doing Research About Libraries for Yourself

EBSCO is providing free access to their database Library, Information Science, & Technology Abstracts for free on their website. You can find it here.
This is a great gift to the community of libraries. Use it.
Here’s their blurb:
“LISTA database Free to all Interested in Libraries and Librarianship
EBSCO Publishing is proud to provide the Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts (LISTA) database as a free resource to anyone interested in libraries and information management. This world-class bibliographic database provides coverage on subjects such as librarianship, classification, cataloging, bibliometrics, online information retrieval, information management and more. Delivered via the EBSCOhost platform, LISTA indexes more than 600 periodicals plus books, research reports, and proceedings. With coverage dating back to the mid-1960s, it is the oldest continuously produced database covering the field of information science.
Note: Be sure to set a bookmark for http://www.libraryresearch.com or here. This link takes you directly to the LISTA database. Make it a “favorite” so this free resource is available whenever you need it!”
I have also been surprised at the number of fulltext articles on library issues in FindArticles.com. You might find it to a useful free resource too.
Anyway, if you’re in a small library and don’t have access to, or budget for, all the resources you need to make your library decisions, these two free links might help.
