This unique historical record of the scientific community’s response to the U.S. bicentennial constitutes a useful tool for school and public library ready refer­ence to biographical or historical articles on the history of American science and technology.

In an attempt to preserve the outpour­ing of historical articles on science com­memorating the U.S. bicentennial, George W. Black, Jr., Science Librarian at Southern Illinois University, Carbon-dale, was inspired to compile systemati­cally all bicentennial references to sci­ence and technology appearing in over fifteen hundred journals in 1976.

The bibliography contains some 1,065 entries arranged under headings taken from the Wilson index or other standard lists such as L.C. subject head­ings and Index medicus. Indexes to journal titles, to authors, and to proper names cited in the articles enable the user to find any item of information desired quickly and easily. Complete paging of the articles indexed is given, together with cross-referencing to other articles by the same author or authors included in the bibliography.
