One of the presentations at the conference “Mormonism and the Temple” in Logan last month was by Danel W. Bachman, who presented the culmination of a project that he has been working on for the past six years. It is the compilation of a very extensive bibliography on temple studies. Other temple bibliographies have been published in the past (which are listed at the beginning of this compilation), and this bibliography sought to build on those while adding many more references to materials related to the temple. As a result, this draft contains roughly 7,000 entries that pertain to temple studies. And it is now online, at the Academy for Temple Studies website.
This is a great new project that will help researchers, scholars, students, and followers of temple studies find more resources on the subject, and related topics. As you might imagine, this is a living project, and references will be added and pruned over time. There will also be investigation into new bibliography technologies that might be utilized to better format, distribute, collaborate on, cite, and otherwise use the information. All of these efforts will significantly aid scholarship in the field of temple studies.
