Bibliography Lists Jump to Home page Help Jump to Contents page Jump to Help Index Search Previous  help page Next help page

The bibliography lists are available sorted by Author (author + title), and by Subject (subject + author + title). Both lists show the bibliographical information in the same way. The Author list includes all items in the bibliography; the Subject list includes only items that have been assigned to a subject heading. The same item can appear under more than one subject heading.

The author and title appear first. This is followed by the citation, giving the publisher, journal name and volume, series name, publication date, and any other relevant data.

The lists are very large and may take a while to load. To make it easy to jump to various parts of the list, each alphabetic section has a yellow bar before it; clicking a letter on any of the bars will jump to the section of the page with items starting with that letter.

One or more symbols may appear in the listings. See below for an explanation of these symbols.


These symbols may appear in the bibliography lists.

Details available: Many of the bibliography items have additional information available, including notes or an abstract, classification numbers, etc. If this symbol appears next to an item in the list, detail information is available. When you click on the symbol, a new window will open, showing the details for the item. See the bibliography detail help page for more information.

Electronic/digital text: Same as the "Details available" symbol above, except that the item referred to is available in digital format. A URL link to the digital item is normally supplied.

Web site or page: The item is a Web site or a page on a Web site. The site or page URL will be included in the citation.

Adobe Acrobat (PDF) document: The document is in Portable Document Format (PDF). You will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software to view it.

Bibliography status 1: The item has been seen by the bibliographer, and the citation details and notes have been confirmed. This is the highest level of reliability.

Bibliography status 2: The item has not been seen by the bibliographer, but the source of the citation is considered to be reliable, and therefore the entry is probably accurate.

Bibliography status 3: The item has been not seen by the bibliographer; the accuracy and completeness of the citation is uncertain. These entries should be used with caution.
