Bibliographic Resources, Databases, and Corpora
on Topics of Sociolinguistics, Language Policy,
Bilingualism, Language Learning, and more.

These are bibliographies that I and others have found useful, mostly because they aren't easily available elsewhere; they have been culled from standard sources (such as library databases, listservs, and published bibliographies) and from CD-ROM indices. If you know of articles or monographs that ought to be added to these lists, please don't hesitate to let me know. Or, if it's proprietary information and should be removed, please let me know.
