Canadian Bibliographies Canadiennes: Bibliography of Canadian Bibliographies / Bibliographie des Bibliographies Canadiennes
The only existing similar bibliography was published in 1930. The tremendous developments in the fields of research and publishing in Canada during the past thirty years have made it very desirable that a new bibliography should be prepared. The Bibliographical Society of Canada formed a committee of members to collect information on bibliographies of local interest or "in progress," and the Society has sponsored the publication. Library schools in Canada supplied lists of works prepared by their students. The staff of the National Library has assisted in the compilation.
The Bibliography is planned to be of use to readers of either English or French. It covers such topics as general bibliographies; current bibliographies; collective bibliographies; author bibliographies; newspapers; manuscripts; temperance; religion; sociology and folklore; politics; law ; education; commerce; linguistics; sciences; anthropology; biology; botany; zoology; agriculture; technology; fine arts; numismatics; music; literature; geography; geography; history. There are very complete indexes to compilers, subjects and authors.
