Bibliographies of NYS Library Resources on Selected Topics

A bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents about a particular subject or written by a particular author.

  • Items are arranged alphabetically by author's last name or, when there is no author, by the first word of the title.
  • If the State Library has a copy of the item listed, the citation may be followed by its call number, in parentheses, e.g., (R,929,qD23m), to help you identify the book in our collection.
  • A citation may also be followed by a brief annotation, or description, usually intended to evaluate the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the source cited.

The State Library has also created a series of Internet Bibliographies, which are lists of citations for Web resources.
