Reviews of Indexing, Abstracting and Database Services

One of the charges of the Bibliography Committee of ANSS is to review abstracts and indexes in all formats to determine their value to the anthropology and sociology community. These reviews have been published in ANSS Currents (copyright held by American Library Association). Some of the reviews published are reproduced here.
