Bibliography of Bibliographies

These are lists of bibliographies to help users in choosing bibliographies. They help in tracing bibliographies. The bibliographic control of bibliographies presents many difficulties due to various reasons. The major reason being the total number of usable bibliographies being considerable. Besides this, it is hard to determine whether or not a bibliography exists on a particular topic, suitable for a given user, and also whether it is worthwhile getting hold of it if not in the stock. The last reason is the cost as the major bibliographies are expensive to buy and house.

The bibliographic control of bibliographies thus is somewhat patchy. A very famous publication Besterman's World Bibliography of Bibliographies is presently out of date. The only choice left to the user thus is H.W. Wilson's half-yearly Bibliographic Index 1937, Many of the major bibliographies in current use may be found in Walford's Guide to Reference Materials or in Sheehy's Guide to Reference Books. In the near future, many of our bibliographical queries may be satisfied fully by the online databases.
