From the site:

In recent decades there has been a great increase in the scholarly production pertaining to Mesoamerica. For the period 1514-1960, Ignacio Bernal?s volume, "Bibliografía de Arqueología e Etnografía: Mesoamérica y Norte de México, 1514-1960" lists nearly 15,000 entries. Projections estimate that at least another 20,000 items have been published between 1960 and 1999. As there has not been a corresponding increase in the quality of bibliographic control over this literature, scholars and students have been left with the time-consuming task of searching a series of selective databases and printed bibliographies to maintain a current awareness of pertinent publishing.

The Bibliografía Mesoamericana, jointly supervised by John Weeks of the Museum Library of the University of Pennsylvania and Sandra Noble of the Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies, Inc. (FAMSI), provides a comprehensive and continually updated bibliographic dataset of the published literature pertaining to the anthropology of Mesoamerica. Content includes archaeology, ethnography, ethnohistory, art history, linguistics, physical anthropology, and other related disciplines.
