Preface This bibliography has been prepared to support NOAA Central Library (NCL) activities during International Polar Year 2007-2008. It reflects the NCL network’s unique printed and online resources on exploration and research in Polar Regions. The Bibliography includes citations formatted “by title” from NOAALINC, the library's online catalog and from the library's historical collections. The data and listings are comprehensive from the 18th century to the present. This resource contains all formats, including print, CD-ROM, online full-text documents, digital videos, digital images, online cruise data and Web resources. This document provides full-text access, copyright permitting, to significant Polar documents in the NOAA Library collections. Over one-hundred and fifty of the entries are linked to previously scanned unique documents online as well as to scientific datasets available online via the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) Ocean Archive System. The Bibliography is also published online under LISD Current Reference Series 2006-1 and is available to the international community via the NOAA Central Library's home page and its online catalog NOAALINC. This Bibliography may also serve as an Internet locator for printed and online resources in Polar research. Any comments and suggestions for corrections are welcomed.

This bibliography would not have been possible without the assistance of many individuals at the NOAA Central Library: Janice Beattie, Chief of the Library Information Services Division for her help and support for this project; Doria Grimes, Chief of Contract Operations Branch for her editorial work; Technical Information Specialists, Diana Abney, for coordinating the imaging of the selected publications, Skip Theberge, for his assistance with the selection of books; and librarian Liselle Drake and contractor Gulnar Nagashybayeva, for their assistance with formatting and correcting the citations.
Finally, special thanks goes to the NOAA Climate Data Modernization Project (CDMP) for including IPY documents in their funded projects, and Lason Incorporated for imaging the documents within a short time frame.

I. What is the International Polar Year? An answer may be found at the websites below:
IPY : International Polar Year. (http://www.ipy.org)

“The Polar Regions are remote areas of the Earth that have profound significance for the Earth's climate and ultimately environments, ecosystems and human society. However we still remain remarkably ignorant of many aspects of how polar climate operates and its interaction with polar environments, ecosystems and societies. To have any hope of understanding the current global climate and what might happen in future the science community needs a better picture of conditions at the poles and how they interact with and influence the oceans, atmosphere and land masses. Existing climate models do not work well in the Polar Regions and have for example failed to predict the dramatic break-up of Antarctic ice shelves observed in recent years. The three fastest warming regions on the planet in the last two decades have been Alaska, Siberia and parts of the Antarctic Peninsula, Thus the Polar Regions are highly sensitive to climate change and this raises real concern for the future of polar ecosystems and Arctic society.
There have been a number of major international science initiatives in Polar Regions (…) and all have had a major influence in overhauling our understanding of global processes in these important areas. These initiatives have involved an intense period of interdisciplinary research, collecting a broad range of measurements that provide a snapshot in time of the state of the Polar Regions.”
The First International Polar Year (IPY), 1881-1883was the first in the series of coordinated international expeditions to the Polar Regions. The first IPY, inspired by the Austrian explorer and an officer with the Austro-Hungarian Navy, Carl Weyprecht. Although he died before the commencement of the First International Polar Year, 11 countries participated in 15 expeditions, fulfilling Weyprecht's dream and heralding a new age of scientific discovery. 
The Second International Polar Year (IPY), 1932 – 1933marked the 25th anniversary of the first IPY. It was proposed in 1928 at an international conference of meteorological service directors. Forty nations participated in Arctic research from 1932 – 1933, in the fields of meteorology, magnetism, aurora, and radio science. However, due to the worldwide economic depression, the second IPY was smaller than originally planned.
The Third International Polar Year (IPY), 1957 - 1958,later renamed the International Geophysical Year, was proposed in 1952 by the International Council of Scientific Unions, following a suggestion by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) member Lloyd Berkner. The Third IPY/IGY was based on the earlier IPYs, but included research outside of the Polar Areas. These international research programs involved 80,000 scientists from 67 countries. It produced unprecedented exploration and discoveries in many fields of research and fundamentally changed how science was conducted in the polar regions. Fifty years on, technological developments such as earth observation satellites, autonomous vehicles and molecular biology techniques offer enormous opportunities for a further quantum step upwards in our understanding of polar systems.
The upcoming Fourth International Polar Year (IPY) in 2007-2008will mark the 50th anniversary of the Third International Polar Year to continue the tradition of international science years that began in 1882-1993 with the first International Polar Year and continued with a second International Polar Year in 1932-1933. “It will provide an opportunity to engage the upcoming generation of young Earth System scientists and to get the public to realize just how much the cold ends of the sphere we all live on really do influence us. To ensure that researchers get the opportunity to work in both polar regions or work summer and winter if they wish, the Polar Year will actually run from March 2007-March 2009”
