Horace W. Harrison Online Library - Study Group Resources

This page lists the BNAPS study groups, both active and dormant, and provides a convenient set of links to resources the groups have provided. The resources include:

  • Newsletters
    Some study groups make their newsletter available immediately upon publication. Other groups have requested a delay of one to five years before making them freely available. Some make their newsletters available only to their own members.
  • Virtual meetings
    Spurred on by COVID-19 restrictions on travel and gatherings, study groups have embraced virtual meetings as a forum for exchanging information and making presentations. The groups have made available recordings of the presentations; however, due to privacy concerns, access to most recordings is restricted to BNAPS members.
  • Other resources
    Some study groups have prepared resources such as: background on the formation and activities of the group, introduction to the group's study areas, handbooks, group website, list of reference material, etc.

Some study groups were active for a period of time, but are currently dormant. Dormant groups that published newsletters are listed below if the newsletters are available online. These groups have a "D" preceding their name.

Some study groups eventually merged with another group. These groups have an "M" preceding their name.

For more information about a study group or to join one, refer to the Study Groups page. If you would like a new study group in your collecting area or would like to re-activate a dormant group, contact the Vice-President Study Groups by email:
Ron Smith, studygroups@bnaps.org.

The newsletters are copyrighted by individual study groups. Individual articles are copyrighted by the author.
