This bibliography lists publications that appeared in 1997, but also includes earlier titles that were overlooked in previous years’ compilations. While the current bibliography conforms to the general organization used in preceding issues, a few modifications have been introduced. First, the title of the bibliography has been changed to make explicit the bibliography’s longstanding attention not just to literature but also to the visual arts and music. Second, the section given to exploration and discovery has been retitled “Exploration, Discovery, and Travel” with the aim, again, of providing a better indication of the contents. Last, publications pertaining to “Computers and Digital Technology” have been placed in a newly introduced section that follows the “Technology” listings.

Apart from these changes, the bibliography follows the same pattern used in the past. The initial section, “Collections,” identifies anthologies containing independent essays by a single author or by different authors. The specific essays in these volumes are listed individually under the appropriate category elsewhere in the bibliography and are cross-referenced to the parent work. Succeeding sections of the bibliography are arranged by general subjects, starting with disciplinary theory and followed by rhetoric of science, passing on through the various sciences, and ending with sections on technology and on computers and digital technology. Each section, apart from “Collections,” begins with a cross-listing of entries that overlap categories. A table of contents for the bibliography’s divisions appears at the start of the complete entries.

At the end of the bibliography is an index to the scholars whose works are cited in the entries. The “Index to Subjects” that follows has two parts: first, a list of the names of people discussed in the cited entries; and second, references to selected topics.

I am happy to report two changes in the group responsible for compiling the annual bibliography. First, Susan Allender-Hagedorn now serves as associate bibliographer while she continues her invaluable assistance in searching out relevant publications. Second, the bibliography committee now includes Anne Collins, who will also continue her able coverage of publications concerning the visual arts. On behalf of the Society for Literature and Science as well as for myself, I convey thanks to all the contributors for their labor and cooperation.
