Academic Programs - Qualitative Research

The materials in these bibliographies are references contributed by the Qualitative Research Instructional Faculty at the University of Georgia. Lists are intended to point colleagues and newcomers to some useful publications rather than to be exhaustive. Many entries could have been placed in more than one category, and we have done that in some cases. Overall, for efficiency we have put entries in what we thought was the most relevant category. Patrons of the lists are invited to send additions to Melissa Freeman, Finally the list is currently being updated so some topics may not yet have bibliographic entries.
