By February 13, 2012

For those of you, like myself, who have used and benefitted from the wonderful Mormon History Database—a regularly updated online bibliography of all articles, books, theses, and dissertations in the field—maintained by Mike Hunter at BYU’s Harold B. Lee Library, please consider taking 5 minutes to participate in the following survey:

  1. Should the Studies in Mormon History Database cease to exist, what effect would this have on your work?

    Yikes! I really hope that isn’t a possibility. That database is a marvelous work and a wonder.

  2. Indeed. Feel free to share this at BCC, J, and encourage folks to let them know how valued the database is.

  3. Yeah, I’m sincerely bummed that they are considering stopping it. It is such a tremendous resource. The website saved me $100 because I was about to buy the big red bibliography until someone told me it was all online, plus updates since 2000!

  4. Although I own a copy of the red volume, I haven’t opened it since the database became available online. There would be much sorrow in Zion (or at least among the historians of Zion) if it were discontinued or not updated regularly.
