As of 2013, Ruth Abbey has handed over primariy responsibilties for updating and maintaining the bibliography to Dr. Bradley Thames (University of St. Thomas), who has been assisting her with it since 2008. Dr. Abbey will continue to provide hosting space and remain in an advisory role, but please send all future comments, corrections, updates, and other issues regarding the website to him.

We'd especially be interested in cleaning house a bit, partly by removing entiries that have no or minimal engagement with Taylor's thought. We also would like to add links and abstracts where available. If you have anything to pass along in this regard, we'd appreciate it.

We have recently updated the secondary bibliography by making it possible to sort entries by date as well as alphabetically. Also, we have added a page that brings together all of the essay collections (books and journal issues) dedicated to CT's thought. Hopefully each of these will enhance the functionality of the site.
