About the Gower Bibliography

The Gower Bibliography Online (GBO) is a joint effort of the John Gower Society and The University of Texas at San Antonio Library. For questions, additions, suggestions, or corrections, please contact Mark Allen at mark.allen@utsa.edu.

The GBO was designed and made available in 2007. It includes the bibliographical information printed in The John Gower Newsletter (JGN), information compiled by Professor Peter Nicholson (abbreviated PN in individual entries) of the University of Hawaii at Manoa, covering the years 1980 to the present. This information is updated annually. Materials from before 1980 have been contributed by Conrad van Dyk (abbreviated CvD in individual entries) of Concordia University College in Edmonton, Alberta. Other contributors include R.F. Yeager (RFY) of the University of Western Florida in Pensacola, Candace Barrington (CB) of Central Connecticut State University, Ana Saez Hidalgo of the University of Valladolid, and Mark Allen (MA) of the University of Texas at San Antonio.

The bibliography was designed and implemented by Mark Allen, Shashi Pinheiro, Emilio Cantu, Elaine Wong, and Nicole Provencher, all of UTSA.
