For researchers seeking information and librarians trying to answer questions about a wide range of proper names, this new reference identifies some 350,000 entries in more than 60 widely held reference sources to consult for information on 200,000 proper names. Biographical resources and entries for most historical persons are not indexed, since they are already covered in existing index resources. PNMI identifies sources of information for a wide range of proper names of historical and cultural significance, ranging from allusions and art works to militant groups and Supreme Court decisions. Literature, politics, law, religion, mythology, geography, history, ethnic studies, science and technology, and weather are among the many subject areas represented. For every indexed reference source, full bibliographic data, plus details of the source's coverage and arrangement, are provided. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
