In the summer of 2018, BadgerLink went through a Request for Bid process that resulted in a number of new resources, along with a few upgraded versions of previous resources. Over the next three weeks we will highlight new content.
Last year, two BadgerLink resources were upgraded: MasterFILE Premier became MasterFILE Complete, and Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts (LISTA) added full text.
MasterFILE Complete contains popular full-text magazines, reference books and other sources from world's leading publishers. Content topics include business, health, education, fitness, sports and leisure, personal finance, general science, multicultural issues, DIY and fashion. The Complete version has 2,300+ full-text magazines and journals, 870+ full-text reference books, 73,000+ full-text primary source documents, 1.6 million+ photos, maps and flags, and 70,000+ videos from the Associated Press.

LISTA with Full Text is a database providing cover-to-cover indexing, abstracting and full-text for key library and information science periodicals. Subjects include classification, cataloging, bibliometrics, information literacy, metadata and more. Coverage dating back to 1960 contains 320+ full-text journals, indexing & abstracting for 730+ journals, conference proceedings, library school theses and pamphlets.
