Index to Chiropractic Literature (ICL)
The Index to Chiropractic Literature (ICL) has been a core resource for chiropractic historians and researchers since 1982. In 2007 the Chiropractic Library Consortium (CLIBCON) marked the twenty-fifth anniversary of the first printing of the Index to Chiropractic Literature. For twenty-five years the index has changed and evolved to offer the most current indexing and technological developments to researchers using this resource. Unlike many resources of this type where access is limited or available at a cost, the index is free to all users. One of the primary projects of the Chiropractic Library Consortium (CLIBCON) was the development of the Index to Chiropractic Literature (ICL).
A 2008 study attempted to determine how and to what extent the Index to Chiropractic Literature (ICL) enables people around the world to learn about chiropractic by accessing citations and/or abstracts for peer-reviewed articles from the chiropractic journals. The primary goal of the ICL is to provide cover-to-cover indexing of peer-reviewed literature from chiropractic publishers. Since ICL has no subscription fees or registration requirements this increases its availability. In general, traffic on ICL is heavy and a large variety of searches are performed. Overall the statistics indicate that ICL's population of users is large and geographically diverse, and that this high quality, free bibliographic database is serving its users well.
