Library Search is a fast and intuitive library search system that enables you to search a wide range of LSE Library content, including journal articles, all in one place.
Note: Not all resources are available via Library Search and it is recommended to also search relevant databases individually.
If you are conducting research on a topic and do not have a reading list, we recommend starting with Library Search and searching individual databases. See the suggested list of databases below:
International Bibliography of the Social Sciences(IBSS)
Content: Broad range of social science topics, particularly strong on Anthropology, Economics, Politics & Sociology. Abstracts and references to journal articles, book reviews and chapters from edited books.
Date range: 1951-
IPSA International Political Science Abstracts
ISI Citation Indexes via the Web Of Knowledge
