Internal Library

On this page is a selected bibliography of books that I have in my collection.  There's also a selection of journal articles that I have access to that I will include here.  For some of those journals you will need a JStor or membership to those respective groups.  All of these are listed in Chicago Turabian format and grouped by topic.

Orbiting Library

Orbiting titles are listed that refer to materials that I've either got access to in my work archives, or stand-alone library checkout (not inter-library loans).  Work Archive access will be marked with an asterisk (*), and not all of those may be readily available to everyone in all locations.  Please note also, that any works that are listed from that archive would have been available for purchase - and therefore are not any kind of classified material.
