Current Bibliographies of Texas Texana 2006

Will's Texana Annual: 2006 (issued March 2007) will contain a trio of current bibliographies of Texas.

The "Current Trade" bibliography contains about 800 citations of material about Texas published during 2006. The citations are spare, just author, title, place of publication, publisher, and date. The list includes non-fiction, fiction, children's, poetry, pictorials, etc. Some Spanish language material is included. Often the fiction and juvenile material is so labelled.

The "Current State Government" bibliography includes about 400 selections from the listings provided by the Texas State Library and Archives Commissions Clearinghouse program. Monograph and serials are included.

The "Current Dissertations & Theses" listing contains about 200 titles of more general interest, less technical.

The ANNUAL also includes a retrospection cumulation of the Monthly, and a directory of Texana depositories in Texas.

And a few other items.
