Many of these guides were distributed both to academic and public libraries in the United Kingdom and to centres of American Studies throughout Europe.

The U.S. newspapers listed in this bibliographic guide became the foundation for the British Association for American Studies database: US Newspaper Holdings in UK and Irish Libraries.
