The University Libraries provide a wide variety of both general and subject-specific databases, many of which will support research in Library and Information Studies. If you're new to searching library literature, Library/Information Science & Technology Abstracts w/Full Text (LISTA) is a good place to start. LISTA indexes more than 600 journals, as well as books, research reports and proceedings. Subject coverage includes librarianship, classification, cataloging, bibliometrics, online information retrieval, information management and more. Coverage in the database extends back as far as the mid-1960s.
Below are direct links to a variety of databases of interest to GSLIS students. To see a full list of URI databases and their descriptions, click on the first link, All Reference Databases by Title.
Any time you attempt to access the databases from outside the URI Libraries, you'll be prompted to provide your e-Campus user name and Brightspace/email password.
RefWorks, Mendeley, and Zotero are reference managers with some bonus features. Mendeley and Zotero are "freemium" products, meaning you get a certain amount of storage for free, but once you hit the limit (1 GB for Mendeley and 300 MB for Zotero), you will need to pay for additional storage.
