Answering Your Letters

Dear Jim,

Would you recommend an online bibliographic search tool?  I’ve seen some but I wonder what you would suggest.  Thanks, and thanks for the most entertaining of all the biblioblogs.

Terry G.

Thanks Terry.  There are actually two bibliographic search engines that I’ve found very, very useful over the years.  The first, and this really has to take pride of place, is the Bibil site.  It’s hosted by our friends at Lausanne (and they also have a facebook page which lists updates and additions whenever they appear- very useful indeed).

And the second, from the University of Innsbruck, Bildi.  Don’t worry that these two sites will just catalog German or French materials- they have everything under the sun, including English.

I’ve got links to both on the sidebar under ‘useful sites’.  I hope this helps.
