Introductory Notes for Career Publications of Ivan Scheier
Ivan Scheier
November 1999

The bibliography of my published work is prepared primarily for the two holders of my archives: Regis University/DOVIA in Denver, Colorado and ENERGIZE Inc., in Philadelphia, PA. I believe this reference list belongs with my archives either as a separate section following the other seventeen in the Table of Contents, or else as an addendum to Section O, "Background and Introduction to the Archives."

However, this bibliography does not fit perfectly with the theme of the Archives. Among other things, almost half of the references are from "other careers" of mine; for example, as a research in psychology and a sometime poet.* Even publications generally on volunteerism are not always relevant to the archives’ methodological/ philosophical emphasis. Finally, some of the most important material in the Archives is unpublished. Thus, the most complete description of my career writing, both published and unpublished, would include this bibliography plus the archives. A third major "piece" in my career, The VOLUNTAS Time Capsule on Volunteering," will, I hope, be gathered with the other two pieces, sometime in the next year or two.

There are 130 entries in this bibliography: articles, published reports, books and booklets. The number is enlarged somewhat by my habit of refining, updating, and rewriting works to make a number of publications over time in essentially the same subject area. My 1993 book on Staff/Volunteer relations had no less than four predecessors of this type, extending all the way back to 1978! Moreover, some of the items included in the bibliography were of quite limited circulation and some authors might have considered them not really published. I also included works on which I was primarily editor and/or assembler – this being clearly marked in such cases. I did not include, except in one case, items planned for future publication, e.g. "In press". How much "self-published" material is in the list, depends on how you define "self-published." In some cases, my writings were published by an organization of which I was the director, but in my view, at least, that is not quite self-published. Others may differ on that, of course.

There is also a sense in which the number 130 might be considered an underestimate of my total work. That’s because quite a lot of my writing was never published, though significantly circulated, e.g. to scores of think tank participants, and, in my opinion, also significant in content.


* Indeed, in nearly fifty years of publishing, about the only invariable consistency in my work is having each titled followed by a colon and a subtitle!!

It is also possible a few more of my publications will be unearthed, especially with the continuing discoveries of skillful and devoted searchers such as Mary Lou McNatt of Regis University/Denver DOVIA. Her work is cut out for her on that. Among other things, significantly more than half of the publications are now generally out of print.

Through about 1970, my publications are neatly numbered (1-54) and just as neatly bound. After that, attention to preservation and organization declines rapidly, worsened by two occasions of premature retirement in which my library was donated to other resource organizations. As a result, about 15-20% of the listed publications are not currently in my possession. The citations therefore had to be from other bibliographies, where possible cross-checked between two or more of these.

After the first 54 bound publications, I grouped the works in rough categories which, again roughly, tend to correspond to categories in the archives. I hope this is helpful but caution that these categories not be relied upon as overly precise or mutually exclusive.

Publications considered to be books are indicated as such by having their titles in block capitals. The listing contains fifteen of these currently published, with one other in press. I could write a book about the definition of "book." I’m only sure it is a distinctly subjective matter. For me, a book can be soft - as well as hardcover, self-published or other-published, and is usually at least 75-100 pages. Don’t ask me where I got that number – there are several items over 100 pages in the bibliography not classified as books. Moreover, several items called "books" here have far fewer pages. I’m sure vanity played a role in my count. Thus, my three really slim volumes of poetry are included in the book count – feel free to take them out – because I am mysteriously proud of having published some poetry. Finally, what I have called "books" seem to me to have a special self-contained completeness in their coverage of a subject. Besides, they somehow look like books to me. (How’s that for objectivity?)

-- in the early 1970's, I was the producer of an instructional film entitled "A Second Change" though, much as I hinted, they didn’t let me act in ti. The film was about an adult volunteer working on-to-one with a juvenile offender – and I think it was quit4e well done.
