Webliography: “Resources for Locating International Publications”

Here’s a link to a superb new reference resource by Tina Baich from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) that appears in the May 2013 (vol 74 no 5) issue of College & Research Libraries News. 

It’s not only a useful resource for info pros but it’s also one you might want to share with some library users.

Baich writes:

The resources described in this article can help librarians verify citations and locate physical holdings and open access copies of international publications. An exhaustive inventory of all online finding aids is, of course, impossible in this space, but those listed represent a core set of general resources, reference services, and search tools that put you well on your way to navigating the global research landscape. Access to all resources described here is free of charge.

Resources Are Organized Into the Following Five Categories:

  • General
  • Reference and delivery services
  • Union Catalogs
  • Digital Collections Search Tools
  • Electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) search tools

A PDF version of the article is also available.
