Mormon Bibliography 1960


Beginning in April 1960, the Brigham Young University Library in association with the libraries of the Church Historian’s Office, Salt Lake Public Library, Utah State Historical Society, and the Utah State University Library commenced compiling and publishing a semi-monthly bibliography of writings on Mormon subjects entitled Mormon Americana. This bibliography was all-inclusive and reported periodical articles and pamphlets as well as references to books which contained only short sections on Mormon subjects.

From this bibliography we have selected titles which should be of interest to L.D.S. scholars. The books listed are primarily works of nonfiction and are limited to publications related to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Significant regional and state histories in areas where the Mormons are important have been included. Publications of the federal government and the State of Utah have not been included.

For a more comprehensive listing the reader is referred to the publication Mormon Americana filed with the participating libraries.
