Literature on American higher education has grown enormously. This volume is a guide to reference sources on higher education in America. The book contains entries for roughly 800 titles. Each entry includes a descriptive annotation. Included are books, monographs, government publications, and other reports. Entries are grouped in chapters according to type of reference work, such as bibliographies, dictionaries and encyclopedias, and directories. Within each chapter, general works are listed first, followed by others arranged by more specific topics, such as administration, collective bargaining, and comparative education. While most of the works were published between 1970 and 1990, the volume includes works from 1861 to 1992. Author, title, and subject indexes add to the usefulness of this reference tool.
