Subject Bibliography

Subject bibliographies will list primary sources, secondary sources, or both primary and secondary sources relevant to the study and research of a specific topic or event. Subject bibliographies are probably the most common type of enumerative bibliography, and finding a subject bibliography on your topic can save you lots of time in your research.

Some examples of subject bibliographies include:
