Canadian History: A Student's Guide to Reference Sources.
Rider, Lillian, Comp.
The guide contains over 250 source materials about Canada in the reference department of McLennan Library at McGill University. Many of the sources mentioned are basic to all Canadian studies; therefore, the guide replaces an earlier one (ED 130 965) on "Canadiana" published by McLennan Library in 1974. The first six sections list encyclopedias, handbooks, chronologies, almanacs, annual reviews, and statistical sources about Canada. Section seven, which comprises the main body of the guide, presents bibliographies. These are grouped into six categories: general and historical bibliographies about Canada; regional bibliographies about specific provinces; topical bibliographies including foreign affairs, industry, and ethnic groups; theses and research; newspaper bibliographies; and bibliographies of periodicals. Section eight briefly lists periodical titles on Canadian history, regional history, and related subjects. Each entry gives information on title, publisher and date, McLennan Library catalog and shelf numbers, and a short description of each book's content. An index of main entries and distinctive titles concludes the guide. (Author/AV)
