Newspaper Bibliographies

Numerous bibliographies treat newspapers and newspaper history. Most general bibliographies refer to women in journalism, more often noting them in the index than devoting entire chapters to women.

  • Warren Price's massive Literature of Journalism: An Annotated Bibliography (Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1959; Z6940.P7) considers the press in Britain, Canada, and the United States; this work, and its supplements, is one of the standard bibliographies of the field.
  • Another noteworthy bibliography, limited to the American press, is Newspapers: A Reference Guide by Richard A. Schwarzlose (New York: Greenwood Press, 1987; Z6951.S35 1987 N&CPR). Schwarzlose includes all aspects of the study of newspapers: history, production, society, technology, and reference sources.
  • William David Sloan's American Journalism History: An Annotated Bibliography (New York: Greenwood Press, 1989; Z6951.S54 1989 N&CPR) cites articles that discuss the history of newspapers from 1690 to the present, categorized by chronological period. Mentioned in the index are scholarly articles on individual women journalists, newspaper coverage of women, and the suffrage movement.
