This international bibliography, with its commentary, is not aimed at professional archivists. It rather lists training manuals and reference works which can be used in the teaching of archives administration.
The bibliography is not consistent because the terms "manual" and "textbook" have different definitions in different countries: this explains why the number of works cited also varies so much from country to country. However, the short description of each work will enable to reader to form a more accurate idea of the contents.
To facilitate reference the bibliography is divided into areas of professional practice. Within each area it is arranged alphabetically by language. Works which have been translated are cited only once, in the original language.
