This page is used for collecting links to existing open-access bibliographies that fit the scope of the project. Please email additional suggestions to phoebe.acheson at gmail.com. Thanks!

If you'd like to add items yourself, feel free to edit the wiki. Format of entries is suggested:

  • Title (usually taken from the page itself, unless that is nonexistent or obscure).
  • Link (include text of url and the wiki will automatically hotlink it).
  • Author (individual or corporate, with academic affiliation if appropriate).
  • Last update date (if available; if not I try to note how late items in the bibliography go).
  • Description. Things to note include the audience (some bibliographies specifically target undergraduates or the general public), what sorts of resources are listed (books, articles, web sites, scholarly or popular?), if there is a focus on resources in a specific language, if there are annotations, if the bibliography is structured with sub-headings and examples of them, etc.

The categories are ad-hoc at the moment and may change as the project develops a robust classification scheme for subjects.
