Review

This bibliography concentrates on research in transportation with particular reference to British Columbia. Items are classified in one of three ways: by mode (air, marine, rail, road, urban, pipeline, history, policy); by source (government agency); and by geographical area (seven are indicated for B.C.). All of the material is available for consultation at the University of British Columbia’s main library, at its Special Collections, and at the Centre’s own library. No periodical articles are cited since these are indexed elsewhere, although periodical titles are mentioned. As well, no esoteric or highly technical materials are listed. There are about 2,200 items in this computer-produced listing. Some aspects might be unsatisfactory, such as the use of upper case exclusively for the typeface and the inconsistent application of bibliographic descriptions (sometimes pagination and dates are there, sometimes they are not). And an author index would be useful since the body of the work is arranged by broad subject areas.
