CARNEGIE LIBRARY OF PITTSBURGH

DEBATE INDEX

SECOND EDITION


  PITTSBURGH
  CARNEGIE LIBRARY
  1912



Preface to the Second Edition


This index was begun as a card index to the debaters' manuals in the
Reference Department of this Library. The increasing number of such
manuals and the frequent requests for material on debates made it seem
desirable to combine in one list the indexes to all the manuals, thus
bringing references to all the material on one subject together and
saving the time required to consult the index of each book. The card
index has been so useful here that it has been printed, in the hope that
it may also be useful elsewhere. Under each subject are given the
proposition for debate, page references to the manuals, and a note
indicating the material to be found there, whether briefs, references,
specimen debates or synopses of debates.

The "Debates" of this Library, included in the list of books indexed, is
a loose-leaf book containing briefs and references copied from various
sources or supplementing lists to be found elsewhere. The Carnegie
Library "Reference lists" referred to are less complete manuscript lists
compiled in response to requests.

One hundred new references have been added in this edition. Twenty-four
of these are on new topics and seventy-six are additional references on
topics included in the first edition. New cross references have also
been included when necessary. The new books indexed are Robbins's "High
school debate book," the "Debaters' handbook series" and the new edition
of Askew's "Pros and cons," also the numbers of the "Speaker" and of the
"Bulletin" of the University of Wisconsin issued in the sixteen months
since the first edition of this index was published.

_November 1, 1912._
