8.5 Where can I find online library science journals?

Steve Bergson has compiled a list of all major online LIS periodicals
that provide a table of contents, abstracts or full-text articles. See
Library and Information Science Periodicals on the Internet,
http://www.fortunecity.com/skyscraper/gates/18/libpers.html
PICK, the excellent Internet resource page by the Thomas Perry
Library, has an extensive list of electronic journals in LIS (with an
emphasis on those in the UK) with descriptions as to whether they are
full-text or abstracts. http://www.aber.ac.uk/~tplwww/ej/intro.html

You'll also want to check out the LIS section of BUBL's list of 220
current journals and newsletters: http://bubl.ac.uk/journals/

Some of the interesting online LIS journals available are:

Ariande, a bimonthly newsletter published by the UK Office for Library
and Information Networking, describes and evaluates sources and
services available on the Internet, and of potential use, to
librarians and information professionals. http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/
