International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS) Trial

If you are interested in broader and international coverage of your topic, International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS) is a great source for you.  This indexing and abstracting database is produced by the Library at the London School of Economics and Political Sciences and has long been recognized for its international and interdisciplinary coverage in social science resources.  The database covers four main focus areas of Anthropology, Economics, Politics, and Sociology, and indexes 520, 670, 730, 875 current and 570, 300, 260, 285 no longer published journals for respective area.  The database also indexes books and chapters in a book.  In August 2008, for example, the databases covered 406,000 book and 60,000 book chapter records, and add about 7,000 new book records every year.

Here is the link to the Trail list for your access.  Trial will run until December 10, 2008.
