With some­thing like 600 books that have been pub­lished on the JFK assas­si­na­tion, we are now see­ing books that keep track of oth­er books. Two exam­ples are Coin­ci­dence or Con­spir­a­cy by Bernard Fen­ster­wald (1977) and The Assas­si­na­tion of John F. Kennedy by James Duffy and Vin­cent Ric­ci (1992). The for­mer is rec­om­mend­ed as a ref­er­ence work for researchers; while it has few­er names, the descrip­tions are more com­plete and they include foot­notes to some pri­ma­ry sources. The lat­ter ben­e­fits from fif­teen years of addi­tion­al research and con­tains over 500 names. One major sec­ondary source is giv­en for each name, but the descrip­tion under the name is brief and serves main­ly as an intro­duc­tion for the begin­ner.

Seri­ous researchers with an inter­est in a par­tic­u­lar name should con­sult the impres­sive col­lec­tion of mate­r­i­al — par­tic­u­lar­ly gov­ern­ment doc­u­ments and obscure books, some of which are cumu­la­tive­ly name-indexed — held at the
