INTRODUCTION

INFORMATION EXPLOSION has resulted from increased research, general aptitude for publishing, increase in number of periodicals and organization of local, regional, national and international level seminars/conferences. Quality of information has kept the readers/users in a puzzle of what to choose for better reading. Hence, an attempt is being made in this booklet to give an orientation for SELECTION of basic/leading informative documents on Tuberculosis as a disease and its preventive, social and programme aspects grouped under specific headings, which helps the reader to make a beginning for familiarizing the subject.

This bibliography has 279 citations. Subject headings formulated are in accordance with curriculum framed for the training programme. Bibliography compiled on DOTS & RNTCP, management, and alternate methods of drug delivery appraises the readers about new developments taken place in recent times.

It is reiterated that this is not a comprehensive bibliography but only a selective. For comprehensiveness, please refer to the reference catalogue/periodical abstract bulletin kept near the counter.

Explanation of a bibliography: -

Periodical article shall have the following in succession.


1. Title of the article
2. Name of the author(s)
3. Title of the periodical, reports etc.
4. Year of publication
5. Volume number, and
6. Page numbers

- Whereas, books are cited by:
