Each year the History Section's Bibliography and Indexes Committee continues its project to honor outstanding book-length English-language bibliographies in the field of history. It is our goal to encourage both the work of scholars in the bibliography of history and the publishers who support this important activity. This year's titles were published in 2002 and 2003.
All members of the library profession are invited to submit titles to the committee for consideration. For 2005, the committee will review works published in 2003 and 2004. Nominated titles can be from any period of history. The focus is on first editions, but a subsequent edition will be considered if there is substantial revision. Titles for consideration, with appropriate bibliographic information should be sent to: Jennalyn W. Tellman, University Library, A211, 1510 E. University Blvd., P.O. Box 210055, Tucson, AZ 85721-0055. The next submission deadline is October 31, 2004.
