13 June 2014

The most complete linguistic bibliography is now digitally available at the UvA.

The UvA Library has taken out a subscription to the Linguistic Bibliography Online. Ca 19,000 titles are added  each year by  linguists from various countries and with various specialist areas. Also lesser-known languages are covered, as well as non-Indo-European languages, and endangered and extinct languages, including those from Antiquity. This makes it the most complete general linguistic bibliography. It is freely accessible within the UvA domain or after logging in with your UvAnetID.

UvA background

The editorial team is based in the Netherlands. For almost fifty years the Linguistic Bibliography was published by the Dutch universities together with the Royal Library. When it was no longer subsidised, the commercial publisher Brill took over publication.
Present editors are R. Genis, H. Olbertz (both also teach at the UvA), S. Tol and E. van der Veken.
