ABC-CLIO is a publisher of reference works for the study of history in academic, secondary school, and public library settings. The company was founded as the American Bibliographic Company in 1956. It published the history bibliographic and abstract compendium "Historical Abstracts", one of its flagship products, from 1956 to 2007. During the 1960s, a sister bibliographic and abstract publication on American history, "America: History and Life", was added. A subsidiary, Clio Press, began to publish historical reference encyclopedia and other books during the 1970s, and was later folded back into the company as a whole.

By the 2000s, ABC-CLIO's flagship products had become the standard online database for the research of nearly any topic in the field of history, the company's reference books had won numerous awards, and the company started a series of subject-related online databases for secondary school use. In 2004 the company acquired the historical quarterly journal Journal of the West, which had been published since 1962, further allowing the company to fulfill the mission it has had since the beginning, to publish high quality materials to serve the historical profession and facilitate the teaching of history.

It sold "Historical Abstracts" and "America: History and Life" to EBSCO Publishing in 2007. [" [ EBSCO Acquires Two Renowned Databases from ABC-CLIO: "Historical Abstracts" and "America: History and Life"] ". June 15, 2007.]
