Dear Jim, 

I would not know, never saw the synopsis bibliography for sale, but libraries may also hold the abstract journal it was based on (a reference journal with three lives): 

Literature on automation <http://opc.uva.nl:8080/DB=1.1/SET=1/TTL=3/CLK?IKT=5&TRM=automation>  = ISSN 0377-1067 (1961-1968 published by Dutch PTT)

New literature on automation <http://opc.uva.nl:8080/DB=1.1/SET=1/TTL=3/CLK?IKT=5&TRM=automation>  = ISSN 0028-6095 (1968-1983 published by SSAA/NOVI Studiecentrum )

Excerpta informatica : an abstract journal of recent literature on automation <http://opc.uva.nl:8080/DB=1.1/SET=1/TTL=3/CLK?IKT=5&TRM=automation>  = ISSN 0169-5509 (1985-1998 published by Tilburg University Press)

Kind regards,

Gerard Alberts



Excellent. If I wanted to buy a copy of this who should I go to in Europe to find this?

Dear Jim,
here (below) is the reference to the 2 volume bibliography by the Dutch "Studiecentrum" I showed you before. It virtually coincided with the center's library, which has since been lost. Still this institute was very active in collecting literature in all languages and may well have been among the better informed in Europe.
Kind regards,

International computer bibliography : a guide to books on the use, application and effect of computers in scientific, commercial, industrial and social environments
Place of publ., Publisher, Publication year: Amsterdam, Nederlands Studiecentrum voor Informatica, 1968-1971

Subject: Re: [SIGCIS-Members] European ICT Bibliography

Has anyone published, or put together, a substantial bibliography of books and articles concerning ICT in Europe? I am having difficulty assembling a good bibliographic list for my own work. The British story seems to have made it into many bibliographies, but publications from the Continent are more difficult to find on lists. 

Second, a question for our European colleagues: What are some good online bookdealers to go to for old and new books related to the history of ICT? I would especially like to know of those that carry books from multiple European countries.
