FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE The State Historical Society of Wisconsin has received funding to continue a four-year project entitled African-American Newspapers and Periodicals; A National Bibliography and Union List. The bibliography will be based on the large collections at the Society, University of Wisconsin System Libraries and specialized collections throughout the nation. This project is expected to result in a 2 volume work detailing 3,600 to 4,000 extant publications. The bibliography will be edited by James P. Danky, Newspapers and Periodicals Librarian at the Society, and compiled by Maureen E. Hady who is the African- American Newspapers and Periodicals Bibliographer. Their goal is to make the bibliography as comprehensive as possible, including newspapers and periodicals covering the spectrum from general to specialized and from popular to scholarly. It will be similar in format to Native American Periodicals and Newspapers, 1828-1982. Any contributions you can make regarding titles published in your area or held at your institution (especially those with a local focus) would be greatly appreciated. For more information contact Danky or Hady. Maureen E. Hady State Historical Society of Wisconsin 816 State Street Madison, WI 53706 (608) 264-6532 Thank you.
