Submitted by jcravens42 on February 5, 2008 - 8:14pm.

The Center for International Media Assistance (CIMA), an initiative of the National Endowment for Democracy, has compiled a comprehensive database listing the bibliographic details of over 600 articles, reports, manuals, working papers, and books on topics relevant to the field of media assistance. This database is intended for use by all interested parties. CIMA updates and expands the bibliography through user participation and seeks additions to the contents as well as suggestions to improve the database.

The database is searchable by Title, Author, Year, or Keyword. In addition, the resources are categorised by region - Africa, Asia, Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Middle East and North Africa - and country for easier access to specific relevant resources.

Each entry is also listed by subjects designed by CIMA to represent various aspects of the media assistance field. These subjects include:
* Communication for Development
* Media and Conflict
* Media and Democracy
* Media and Politics
* Media Development
* Media Law and Regulation
* New Media
* Subject-specific Journalism
* Sustainability
* Training and Education
