Searchable HSP databases
We have compiled
several specialized electronic data-bases over the years, two of
which we are now able to share:
- A searchable data-base recording some 15,000 events during
the past two decades that have been associated with CBW. This
is the HSP CBW Events Data-Base. It is a systematic record of
events back to 1987 in and around the world of CBW, searchable
via the text-retrieval application in which it is held. The 'News
Chronology' feature in The
CBW Conventions Bulletin is drawn from it.
- A bibliographical data-base recording some 4,500 publications
on or around the subject of CBW. This is the HSP CBW Publications
Data-Base, a continually updated register of substantial new publications
in the field back to 1987 that is excerpted for the 'Recent Publications'
feature of the Bulletin. It is held in EndNote, so as to facilitate
searching and manipulation.
These two databases
are among the various information registers that HSP has been developing
over the years in order to increase the value to users of its main
archive, the Sussex Harvard Information Bank (SHIB). They are accessible only by visitors to SHIB, or on request
