Free Resources from EBSCO Publishing Providing Useful Information to Researchers

More than 100,000 Institutions Benefit from Free Resources Offered via EBSCOhost®

(PRWEB) June 22, 2010 -- EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) began providing key database content free of charge in 2008 and more and more users are incorporating these free resources into their daily research routines. Two free EBSCOhost® resources, GreenFILE™, and Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts™ (LISTA), have seen a tremendous amount of usage—a good indicator that EBSCO is providing the types of content users need, when they need it, and that these free resources are adding value to institutions around the globe.

GreenFILE focuses on environmental efforts while LISTA is geared toward those interested in libraries and information management. Today, there are more than 100,000 institutions benefiting from the free content in GreenFILE or LISTA. Statistics over the past 12 months have shown that there have been nearly 100 million searches for these two EBSCOhost resources alone—nearly 53 million searches performed in GreenFILE and more than 46 million searches in LISTA.

EBSCOhost databases are usually available by institution-level subscription only, but by making GreenFILE and LISTA freely available to anyone, EBSCO’s goal is to make it easy for those interested in environmental or library & information resources to get quick access to relevant information.

EBSCO Publishing President Tim Collins says these resources are in subject areas that tie in to EBSCO’s corporate culture. “EBSCO has made significant efforts to be an environmentally responsible company and making GreenFILE available to anyone interested is consistent with our commitment to make a difference in this area. We decided to make LISTA freely available as a way of supporting libraries as we have appreciated our decades-long relationship with the library community. We are very pleased to see the significant usage of these free resources.”

GreenFILE is a bibliographic database of information about environmental concerns. The database offers well-researched information covering all aspects of human impact to the environment. Its collection of scholarly, government and general-interest titles includes content on the environmental effects of individuals, corporations and local/national governments, and what can be done at each level to minimize these effects. GreenFILE is freely available at

LISTA indexes more than 550 core journals, nearly 50 priority journals, and nearly 125 selective journals; plus 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. It is EBSCO’s intention to provide access to LISTA on a continual basis at Customers currently subscribing to other EBSCOhost databases may elect to have LISTA added to their EBSCOhost profile.

Users can also take advantage of accessing the resources through EBSCOhost, the most-used for-fee electronic resource in libraries around the world. EBSCOhost offers a clean look and feel, for a technologically sophisticated, yet familiar search experience. Built-in flexibility provides users with the ability to customize their searches and brings an intuitive approach to searching online databases.
