Abstract:The paper provides an overview of relevant electronic sources of information for social sciences available to scholars and researchers as well as to the wide public in Serbia. The body of the paper describes a relevant and unavoidable information source - the COBISS (Cooperative Online Bibliographic System and Services) comprising data from 129 domestic libraries, among which are also the National Library, the central University Library and departmental libraries attached to social sciences faculties. Special attention is paid to the most important information system for teaching and research in the country - the KOBSON (Serbian Library Consortium for Coordinated Acquisition) which allows for the open access to a large number of scientific journals in full text (about 35 000), electronic books (about 40 000), as well as to bases of summaries and citations, comprising in addition to Serbian National SCIndex also a large number of foreign databases for social sciences (JSTOR, Emerald, EBSCO, Science Direct, SAGE, Oxford, Cambridge and other). In the conclusion of the paper it is claimed that the library community of Serbia by making available a wide range of information sources, makes considerable contribution to the advancement and speed of scientific and practitioner's communication, and also raises the awareness of the public relating to the importance of taking more active part in the social life of the country.
