Philosopher's Index now available online

Say hello to Philosopher’s Index (PI), the newest addition to the more than 230+ online research databases available to you via the Albertsons Library’s website! PI is part of the EBSCOHost databases suite, a system that allows you to search multiple databases simultaneously, such as the Religion and Philosophy Collection and ERIC. EBSCOHost also enables you to limit your searches to specific publication and/or date range, language, and to create RSS alerts for your search terms -- to name a few of its features.

PI can be searched back to its inception in 1940, with most newer publications available online full-text or linked to full text. From the publisher:

The Philosophers Index™, produced by the Philosophers Information Center, is a current and comprehensive bibliographic database covering scholarly research in all major fields of philosophy. The Philosopher’s Index, considered the most thorough index of journal literature on the subject, features author-written abstracts covering scholarly research published in journals and books, including contributions to anthologies and book reviews.

The database covers the fifteen fields of philosophy: aesthetics, axiology, philosophy of education, epistemology, ethics, philosophy of history, philosophy of language, logic, metaphysics, philosophical anthropology, metaphilosophy, political philosophy, philosophy of science, social philosophy, and the philosophy of religion. The Philosopher's Index contains research published since 1940 including nearly 570 journals from 43 countries with content representing a variety of languages.

You can access PI from the library's Articles, Databases link from the library home page, or from the A - Z list of databases.
