Working Bibliography

worthy & useful every day

Working Bibliography at Porkopolis.org

A library’s presentation is systematically organized and displayed in enticing fashion. Librarians oversee the information and stand at the ready, just like the friendly pork butcher, indiscriminate and eager to serve all.

Dan Schultz, Porkopolis.org Editor.

This is a working bibliography – a collection of texts that pertain to the theme of the interrelated existence of pigs and humans. I am able to maintain it because of tools provided at WorldCat – the world’s largest and most comprehensive library catalog – and the Online Computer Library Center, Inc [OCLC].
