SURVEY OF BIBLIOGRAPHIES AND REFERENCE WORKS ON ASIA, AFRICA, LATIN AMERICA, RUSSIA, AND EAST EUROPE--AND COMPILATION OF BIBLIOGRAPHIES ON EAST ASIA, SOUTH ASIA AND AFRICA SOUTH OF THE SAHARA FOR UNDERGRADUATE LIBRARIES. INTERIM REPORT, PHASE ONE.
MOREHOUSE, WARD
THE PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT IS TO ASSIST UNDERGRADUATE LIBRARIES IN STRENGTHENING THEIR RESOURCES ON AREAS OUTSIDE THE PERIMETER OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION USUALLY GIVEN LITTLE ATTENTION BY AMERICAN COLLEGES, WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON EAST AND SOUTH ASIA AND AFRICA SOUTH OF THE SAHARA. UNDER THE PROJECT'S FIRST PHASE, A PANEL OF LIBRARY ADVISERS WAS ESTABLISHED, AND PRELIMINARY VERSIONS OF A GUIDE TO REFERENCE MATERIALS ON NON-WESTERN EUROPEAN AREAS AND BIBLIOGRAPHIES ON EAST ASIA, SOUTH ASIA, AND AFRICA SOUTH OF THE SAHARA HAVE BEEN COMPILED BY COLLATING EXISTING BIBLIOGRAPHIES AND ADDING RECENTLY PUBLISHED ITEMS. THE BIBLIOGRAPHIES WERE PREPARED BY COMPUTERS, USING WITH SUCCESS THE DATATEXT SYSTEM FOR SOURCE DATA ENTRY. THE FINAL VERSIONS WILL BE ISSUED AFTER REVISION AND GRADING BASED ON ADVICE FROM SCHOLARS AND LIBRARIANS. INCLUDED AS AN APPENDIX IS THE REPORT OF A CONFERENCE ON THE PLACE OF NON-EUROPEAN LANGUAGE MATERIALS IN UNDERGRADUATE LIBRARIES (CHICAGO, NOVEMBER 17, 1967). TOPICS DISCUSSED BY FACULTY AND LIBRARIAN PARTICIPANTS INCLUDE THE IMPACT ON UNDERGRADUATE LIBRARIES FROM IMPROVED LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION AND INCREASING FACULTY NEEDS FOR RESEARCH MATERIALS IN NON-ENGLISH LANGUAGES. CONFERENCE RECOMMENDATIONS ON APPROPRIATE ACQUISITIONS IN THESE AREAS CONCLUDE THE REPORT. ALSO APPENDED IS A PAPER READ AT THE CONFERENCE--"SOME REFLECTIONS ON THE USE OF RUSSIAN LANGUAGE MATERIALS ON THE COLLEGE LEVEL AND DESIRABLE FUTURE DIRECTIONS IN THIS AREA," BY DOUGLAS READING.
