[p.75] Malta in British Periodicals1915-51: A Select List

by

J. Cassar Pullicino, A.L.A.

The list which follows is based on the entries under MALTA appearing in the Library Association’s Subject Index to Periodicals since 1915. This Subject Index is to be found in the majority of British libraries: however, as no library in Malta subscribes to the Index it is well to include here a few notes on this important work of reference.

The Subject Index to Periodicals, published by the Library Association of London, has been appearing annually since 1915, except for the years 1923-25. In its early years it had a different title, i.e. Athæneum, and appeared as a series of class lists for different subjects. It is now an alphabetical subject-index to the contents of some 374 periodicals, all of which are in the English language. The Subject Index is intended principally to serve the general reader, and highly specialized periodicals whose contents are covered by sectional indexes and abstracts are not dealt with. However, the fact that it analyses so many important periodicals which are not indexed elsewhere makes it of great value to scholars and research workers in many branches of learning.

The scope of the Subject Index is primarily the humanities and the social sciences. The titles indexed include practically all the important periodicals on subjects of wide appeal, a few of the more general technical and semi-technical periodicals, and many of the publications of local societies — county, archaeological and natural history societies. Some of the indexing is done at the Headquarters of the Library Association, and some is done by co-operating libraries, the latter entries being edited before being incorporated with the material indexed at Headquarters. Though the Subject Index is not exhaustive, it may be considered to be extremely well-balanced in its selection. [1]

All the articles listed here appeared under the heading MALTA, with suitable sub-headings, e.g.. MALTA. Antiquities, or else under another heading, with appropriate see or see also references from the heading MALTA, e.g.

MALTA, Knights of. See ORDER OF ST. JOHN OF JERUSALEM.
MALTA. See also under MAN, PREHISTORIC: Malta (following entries).

My aim in collecting all entries in one list has been to give a good picture of important contributions relating to Malta in responsible British periodicals from 1915 to 1951. At the same time this list is intended to enable students and research workers to trace as much material as possible on a given subject or this purpose [p.76] the titles of the articles have been re-grouped under headings such as a research worker would be interested in. No attempt has been made, however, to assess the value of the articles listed, and it is hoped that the researcher will use his selective judgment in the analysis of the research and information value of the contents of the articles, which are of varying standards. This especially applies to articles published in the pre-war and immediate post-war period.

An author index at the end refers to the numbered entries of the list under each main heading subjects are again split into sub-headings, arranged alphabetically, and the articles under each are listed chronologically by date of publication. An alphabetical list of periodicals in which the articles appeared is given at the beginning, together with the year of first publication, when this is available. [2] To economise in space periodicals are referred to in their abbreviated form in the entries, and a list of abbreviations used is also given.

The Maltese research worker so far has been greatly hindered in his work by the lack of suitable bibliographical aids. It is hoped that the present lead given by the “Malta Historical Society” in encouraging the compilation and publication of such lists will improve matters, and provide the much-needed and long-denied tools to the student of local history.
