(The photo above of the building for the old Public Library in Port of Spain [left], which subsequently became the Heritage Library, is the first place where I was employed following the completion of my doctorate.)

What follows below is a mixture of bibliographic listings, document compilations, and news archives. Some of these have already proven very useful to both academic researchers and journalists.

I use a number of online tools to archive, index, and organize documents and news reports, which often form the basis of my own writings. I also maintain an ongoing document library (which you can view here, and subscribe to the RSS feed to get updates when new documents go up).
