The Bibliography was first distributed in machine-readable form at the Society’s 1990 Conference. It has since been enlarged, systematized and edited by William Steinhurst and Kip Cooper through 1995. The bibliography then was passed on to Jennifer L. Ferriss. William Steinhurts and Nan Lux were also major contributors. Currently updates are conducted by the SDS office. Cumulative bibliographies from many practitioners and reference sources have been collected and combined in a consistent format.
