The Chesapeake Bay Bibliography was initiated by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science in response to growing resource management problems of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. With these problems came the realization that planning and management of such a great natural resource is an overwhelming task requiring the best available information. This bibliography, therefore, was undertaken to document existing sources of information, to help identify research and data gathering needs, and to develop a comprehensive research and information services programs for individuals interested in research on, and management of the natural resources of the Chesapeake Bay region.
The James River Bibliography is a subject index of literature concerning the James Basin.
- Volumes II - Virginia (1972) and III - Maryland (1975) focused the respective segments of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.
- Volume IV - Virginia Waters (1976) includes and updates the water resource-oriented citations contained in Volumes I and II, and it also identifies information sources dealing with the land resources of Virginia's nine coastal planning regions.
- Volume V - Virginia and Maryland Waters (1981) covers the entire Bay and its tributaries, from the fall line of the Susquehanna River, south through Maryland and Virginia to the Hampton Roads area and extends three miles into the territorial offshore waters of Virginia. The Virginia segment of the Eastern Shore on the Delmarva Peninsula is also included.
