Online Bibliographic Searching in the Humanities Databases: An Introduction.
Suresh, Raghini S.
Numerous easily accessible databases cover almost every subject area in the humanities. The principal database resources in the humanities are described. There are two major database vendors for humanities information: BRS (Bibliographic Retrieval Services) and DIALOG Information Services, Inc. As an introduction to online searching, this article focuses on DIALOG. By searching several databases, a wealth of information can be retrieved. The following databases available through DIALOG are described, with their DIALOG file numbers: (1) America History and Life; (2) Architecture Database; (3) Art Literature International; (4) Artbibliographies Modern; (5) Arts and Humanities Research; (6) Avery Architecture Index; (7) ERIC; (8) Historical Abstracts; (9) Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts; (10) Music Literature International; (11) Philosopher's Index; and (12) Religion Index. These files span a wide range of disciplines. Awareness of what they contain will help the researcher in the humanities decide when an online search will provide more flexibility in researching a given topic. (Contains 10 references.) (SLD)
