A bibliography on postsecondary accreditation covers: (1) in part I, 529 books, articles, and historical references completed during 1970-1984 and (2) in part II, 122 doctoral dissertations for the 1935-1984 period. Eighty percent of the dissertations were completed since 1980, as were 42 percent of the other materials. Part I includes some brief annotations and covers the following topics: purpose of accreditation, policies and standards, process and procedures, the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation, national and regional accrediting bodies, the accrediting process, federal and state relations, certification and licensure, legal issues and case law, educational innovation and off-campus learning, commentary and proposals for change, interagency cooperation, educational auditing and evaluation, and historical literature. Appended are the names, addresses, and phone numbers of national and regional institutional accrediting bodies and specialized accrediting bodies. Part II, doctoral dissertations, is arranged by year with brief annotations for each dissertation. Author, topical, and institutional indexes for the dissertations are included. Although 68 schools were represented, about 20 percent of the dissertations were conducted at five institutions. (SW)
