This selective bibliography of intergenerational materials reflects the mission and activities of Generations Together, an intergenerational studies unit of the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Social and Urban Research. The items selected for inclusion focus on the literature that describes" ... mutual beneficial interaction between young and old through community outreach, education, research, and dissemination of knowledge." (Generations Together. 1999. "Mission Statement")

This list covers the five-year period of 1994-1998 and follows an earlier bibliography that covered the period 1980-1994. The two bibliographies are similar in size, mirroring the growth of intergenerational studies as a dynamic field of research and programming. This bibliography is organized by format, and criteria and content limitations are noted at the start of each section when appropriate.

It is hoped that this bibliography will assist program directors, human service professionals, educators, researchers, and students to identify resources on intergenerational topics.
