New e-Resource - BDSL Online (German language and literature)

Following a successful trial period, the Library has subscribed to BDSL Online, the online version of the Bibliographie der deutschen Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaft.

BDSL Online is an important international bibliography of published literature on German language and literary studies, produced by the University Library Frankfurt am Main

It indexes monographs as well as journal and newspaper articles, anthologies, and Festschriften, from 1985 to the present.

It currently includes approximately 350,000 titles and roughly 15,000 items are added every year. 

BDSL Online includes an advanced search that lets you search and combine terms in author and title fields, specify year ranges for publication, etc. 

NB: the search interface is in German, but many records in English are included
