Network Bulletin No. 98-44
Date: July 24, 1998
Index term: Survey of topics for published bibliographies
Attached is a questionnaire listing possible subjects for
the next bibliographies. The purpose of this survey is to
identify the topics that have the highest priority in the
network. Each year we can produce either two small
bibliographies (the size of Entertainers) or one double-
sized bibliography (the size of Science Fiction and
Fantasy). We propose one new bibliography and one update of
an older bibliography for the coming year. For this reason
we ask that you select only one new bibliography subject and
one update. Selecting more than one topic will not give us
a clear indication of your patrons' preference.
Two of the proposed subjects, biography and American
history, are very large and must be narrowed down.
Therefore, if you vote for either of these topics, please
indicate which specific area would best serve patrons'
You can suggest additional subjects of wide interest to your
patrons. Please list them at the end.
Please respond by August 7, 1998.
