Kepple, p. 103 (AB4) : "The major indexing and abstracting tool for O.T. studies, similar in purpose and content to New Testament Abstracts. Includes abstracts (in English) of periodical articles in over 200 scholarly journals from many countries. Also includes a section of brief Book Notices.' Abstracts are grouped by broad subject classifications. The third issue of each year has cumulative author, Bible-passage, and Semitic-word indexes. Good coverage, but only since 1978."
Kepple, p. 108 (AC7): "Provides brief English-language abstracts of articles on the N.T. and related areas, as well as brief "book notices." Uses a broad classified subject arrangement. Now indexes over 500 journals and lists over 500 books per year. Author, biblical-reference, book review, and book notice indexes are included in the 3rd issue of each year. A cumulative author and biblical-reference index is available for 1956-1971. Vols. 1-13 also contain a "biographical notes" section on N.T. scholars. Extremely valuable--the major indexing tool for N.T. studies."
Kepple, p. 96 (AA8): "Vols. 1-48 (1920-1967) issued as part of [the journal] Biblica. The most extensive bibliography for biblical studies. Published annually, usually 2-3 years after the date of the material included. Covers over 1,100 journals as well as books, dissertations, etc., in the field. Classified subjects arrangement; see the table of contents at the back of each volume. Includes indexes of authors and subjects, Hebrew words, Greek words, and words in other languages. No abstracts. While the index goes back to 1920, it was not so extensive then and its structure and indexing were poor. From 1960 to 1966 supplements to this bibliography were published to Verbum Domini. Note the title change beginning in 1988. This is a must tool for extensive biblical studies research."
Kepple, p. 97 (AA9): "'IZBG.' Not as extensive as EBB, but does include abstracts (usually in German) of each item indexed and has an arrangement that is easier to use. Covers articles in over 400 periodicals, plus festschriften, reports, and book reviews. Classified subject arrangement, use the table of contents at the back of each volume. Author index."
