Africa South of the Sahara: A Bibliography for Undergraduate Libraries.
Duignan, Peter; And Others
Library collections are generally ill equipped to effectively support foreign area students. This bibliography, one of a series on "neglected" foreign areas, attempts to provide guidelines for libraries in meeting these resources needs. Selection of entries was made according to the following guidelines: 1) few works in languages other than English; 2) emphasis on books published in the last 25 years, except for classica works; 3) few government documents; and, 4) an attempt to balance source books and secondary works, while covering all disciplines. Arrangement of entries is by broad geographic category, with subsections based on type of publication (bibliography, reference book, journal, general book) and subject area (history and archaeology, philosophy and religion, art and architecture etc.). Each entry is graded as to its degree of necessity for undergraduate collections, from books that should be purchased whether or not any courses on the area are taught, to books necessary for an undergraduate area studies program. References to annotations and reviews are provided for each item. Out-of-print, reprinted, and microform titles are so indicated. Prices have been omitted, as they are subject to change. (JLB)
