Adult Education: A Bibliography of English-Language Books and Selected Non-Periodical Literature.
Rachal, John R.
This bibliography lists almost 4,000 books and other selected nonperiodical literature in the field of adult education. The bibliography was prepared using the following sources: the card catalogue of the University of Southern Mississippi (USM) library; the bibliographies of all adult education books in the library's holdings; articles and book reviews from "Journal of Adult Education" (1929 and following), "Adult Education" (1951 and following), "Adult Education Quarterly" (1983 and following) and "Lifelong Learning" (1977 and following); recent catalogs and advertisements from publishing firms; and other bibliographies. (Citations for books that are located in the USM library include call numbers.) The materials are listed alphabetically under 12 broad headings, with subheadings in some categories: general works in adult education; agencies and institutions (cooperative extension, community and public schools, colleges and universities, libraries, museums, and other); historical and biographical works in adult education; adult education in other countries (Africa, Asia, Central and South America, Europe, and other); learning and development theory in adult education; literacy and adult basic and secondary education; methods, materials, and media in adult education; program planning in adult education; religion and philosophy in adult education; special populations in adult education (correctional education, elderly, health, military, minorities, nurses, parent education, women's education, workers' education, and other); learning, training, and the workplace (continuing professional education, training); and bibliographies in adult education.
