Welcome to the CIKARD Bibliography

The Cultural Dimension of Development book jacket.

The Cultural Dimension of Development was written by D. Michael Warren

The Center for Indigenous Knowledge and Rural Development (CIKARD) Bibliography is comprised of reports, theses, articles and books pertaining to indigenous knowledge for agricultural and rural development. The materials were gathered between 1987 and 2000 by Dennis Michael Warren (1942-1997), an anthropologist and leading Africanist scholar who taught at Iowa State University from 1972-1997, and his colleagues and graduate students in CIKARD. For those interested in learning more about Dr. Warren see the finding aid to his papers located in the Iowa State University Special Collection and University Archives. 

In 2010, the collection was transferred from Iowa State University to the Penn State University Libraries. Since then, Penn State librarians Amy Paster and Helen Smith worked to bring D. Michael Warren's CIKARD bibliography to life in this fully searchable format.
