Quarterly Magazine

Since 1984 WorldViews has published a quarterly review of print and audiovisual resources from and about the Third World: Third World Resources (ISSN 8755-8831). The title of the quarterly magazine changed to WorldViews: A Quarterly Review of Resources for Education and Action with Volume 12, Number 1, January-March 1996. Librarians, educators, human rights workers, political activists, and others use the magazine to identify and acquire print and audiovisual resources that offer fresh perspectives on critical world affairs.

Each issue of the 28-page magazine contains descriptions and evaluative reviews of

  • Organizations
  • Books
  • Periodicals
  • Pamphlets
  • Films and videotapes
  • Audiotapes and compact discs
  • CD-ROMs

    The Table of Contents from a recent issue of the quarterly illustrates the breadth of coverage and the diversity of resource materials in the magazine.
