Introduction
Linguistic Bibliography Online contains over 490,000 detailed bibliographical descriptions of linguistic publications on general and language-specific theoretical linguistics. While the bibliography aims to cover all languages of the world, particular attention is given to the inclusion of publications on endangered and lesser-studied languages. Publications in any language are collected, analyzed and annotated (using a state-of-the-art system of subject and language keywords) by an international team of linguists and bibliographers from all over the world. With a tradition of over seventy years, and over 20,000 references added annually, the Linguistic Bibliography remains the most comprehensive bibliography for every scholar and student of linguistics.

Abstracting policy
As of 2012, the Linguistic Bibliography Online includes abstracts and summaries in bibliographical descriptions of books and articles. This service to our users is exclusively available in the online version of the Linguistic Bibliography, i.e. abstracts do not appear in the annual print volumes. Abstracts are displayed as they appear in the original publication, although formats may be edited for technical reasons, and copyright remains with the author and/or publisher.

We are much obliged to the publishers, organizations and journal editors providing abstracts free-of-charge and granting us permission to display them in our online database. Click here to view the full list of cooperating institutions.

History of the Linguistic Bibliography/Bibliographie Linguistique
The idea of compiling a linguistic bibliography was conceived in 1946, at the sixth meeting of the CIPL (Comité International Permanent des Linguistes/Permament International Committee of Linguists) in Paris. The bibliography would cover linguistic publications of the previous years in order to re-establish international contacts between linguists which had been interrupted by World War II. Linguists from ten different countries contributed to the first volume, which was was the responsibility of Prof. Christine Mohrmann, who soon entrusted the work to Jan Beylsmit. In 1948, the newly founded UNESCO agreed to make a financial contribution to each volume, which would cover the printing costs. In 1949, the first volume of the Linguistic Bibliography/Bibliographie Linguistique (LB) was published by publishing house Spectrum (Utrecht, The Netherlands).

From then on, new volumes of the LB yearbook were published, first with Spectrum, then with Martinus Nijhoff (1980-), Kluwer (1988-), Springer (2005-), and finally Brill (2008-). From 1983, the LB staff were housed in the Koninklijke Bibliotheek (National Library of the Netherlands), where an online bibliographical database was developed. The Linguistic Bibliography Online (LBO) was launched in 2002 and contains all bibliographical references from 1993 onwards.

Today, the Linguistic Bibliography print volumes and online database are published with Brill (Leiden, The Netherlands), and are compiled by four in-house editors and some 40 contributors from all over the world. The print volumes continue to appear annually and Linguistic Bibliography Online is updated monthly.
