EServer EServer Rhetoric Community's wikipage, for specialized bibliographies [ongoing] [Link] online bibliography, specialized This website was first created in 1994, built to serve as a central location to link to the diverse online materials available on the Internet. At that time, web portals did not yet exist. What rhetoric and composition pages on the Web did exist were heavily colored by the perspectives of their host institutions. This site hoped to publish what resources it could, and to link to all, serving as a central "map" to the rest. Even so, many people referred to it as the "CMU Rhetoric" website (because it was physically located at Carnegie Mellon University); some people refer to it that way to this day, even though the site has physically moved to Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. And today, of course, there are far more resources online than we could index adequately with a single online editor--even if s/he wrote HTML day and night. So this website is today based on a modern content management system, one that allows volunteers, reviewers and editors to collaborate to post new materials, and to link to the complex web of online resources located across the Internet that comprise the complex network of rhetoric resources online.

Howard, Rebecca Moore Rebecca Moore Howard's Bibliographies for Composition and Rhetoric [ongoing] [Link] online bibliography Over 250 bibliographies arranged by topic, such as 'agency,' 'ability grouping,' 'grading,' 'research method,' 'wikis.' For years I've been compiling bibliographies on topics that interest me. I have hundreds of them. I share them with graduate students, and as I kept sending out the same bibliographies as email attachments, I finally decided just to put them online. The list of online bibliographies keeps growing, as I find time and inclination to convert word processed bibliographies to html. [Rebecca Moore Howard]

Adler-Kassner, Linda; Gregory Glau Bedford Bibliography for Teachers of Basic Writing, Second Edition 2005 [Link] online bibliography This second edition of the Bibliography, which marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Conference on Basic Writing, continues to serve as a resource for those participating in conversations about basic writing and students in basic writing classes. But this edition of the Bibliography is also an artifact, a body of scholarship that provides the basic writing community with an opportunity to reflect on its history and the narratives about basic writing that have emerged over the past decades. By exploring basic writing's past and present, we hope to better understand the questions and issues that will shape the field in the years to come.
