Palic, Vladimir M.
Current and retrospective bibliographic aids are listed for official publications issued by the United States, foreign countries, and international governmental organizations. The material is arranged by geographic area, with U.S. federal, state, and local government publications listed separately. A short history of each U.S. government agency is included, with indications of principal changes in name. Similar brief notes are included for states. Foreign countries are grouped in five geographic areas, and for each country there is a brief historical note. For international governmental organizations the date of establishment and the English abbreviation are provided. Bibliographic materials include government and non-government catalogs, checklists, price lists, indexes, accessions lists, general bibliographies, and other indirect aids. Brief annotations and Library of Congress catalog entries and call numbers are provided for most items. The index includes selected personal and corporate authors, titles of works, names of geographic areas, countries, provinces, states, and international governmental organizations. (Author/LS)
