Henry Yaple Ski Bibliography

Henry M. Yaple, the chief librarian at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Wash., spent 11 years assembling a massive bibliography of skiing. The goal was to list every book, dissertation, film video and piece of software published on skiing, in English, between 1890 and 2002.

The resulting two-volume work, comprising 732 pages, was published by ISHA in 2004. It lists more than 7,000 items.

How to Use Ski Bibliography

Information in Ski Bibliography can be found through multiple access points.

SUBJECT INDEX: There are three subject indices: NORDIC, ALPINE and COMBINED. These indices are located in Volume I, xxiv-xxvi and Volume II, xxxi respectively. Citations in the NORDIC Index are concerned with skis and skiing where the skier's heel is not fixed or attached to the ski. Citations in the ALPINE Index are concerned with skis and skiing where the skier's heel is fixed or attached to the ski. Citations in the COMBINED Index concentrate primarily upon the business or industry of skiing, and may apply either to nordic skiing, alpine skiing or both.

The various sub-categories of the NORDIC, ALPINE and COMBINED indices are derived from the subject matter of the actual works listed. For example, there are works listed under NORDIC/Trails, ALPINE/Lifts, and COMBINED/Market Research.

The entries or citations in Ski Bibliography are numbered consecutively so that each entry has its own discrete or unique number. The numerical range of items are listed for each sub-category in the respective subject indices. For example, NORDIC/Autobiographies covers items 2 through 15. ALPINE/Film covers items 1487 through 2123, and COMBINED/Fiction covers items 4937 through 5166.
