An Annotated Bibliography

UBC Press

This bibliography cites those Canadian and foreign reference sourcesthat describe Canadian people, institutions, organizations,publications, art, literature, languages, and history. It lists booksof a general nature as well as works in the disciplines of history andthe humanities. These large divisions are then broken down by subject,genre, type of document, and province or territory. Titles of national,provincial/territorial, or regional interest are included in everysubject area when available. The contents of the book are indexed fourways: by name, title, French subject, and English subject. And tofacilitate browsing, the major reference books (those dealing with morethan one subject or a large geographical region) are alsocross-referenced.

Two entries have been created for each bilingual document in orderto provide access and bibliographical descriptions in both ofCanada's official languages. Entries for unilingual works include acitation in the language of the publication and a bilingual annotation.The annotations are descriptive and provide information on the content,arrangements, and indexing of works; the availability of non-printformats; previous editions and title changes; and related works.

Canadian Reference Sources will be an invaluable referencetool for future scholars and researchers.
