Compilation of Bibliographies on Southeast Asia and the Middle East and North Africa for Undergraduate Libraries. Final Report.
The bibliography project aimed at providing undergraduate libraries with additonal and more recent resources by listing in separate bibliographies of 750 entries on Southeast Asia and 1200 entries on the Middle East and North Africa, each arranged by country and subject with an author index. The two computerized bibliographies, Southeast Asia: A Bibliography for Undergraduate Libraries and Middle East and North Africa: A Bibliography for Undergraduate Libraries, designed to serve as book selection tools for librarians, were graded and edited while in a pre-bibliography state by scholars and librarians who evaluated books for their degree of importance to undergraduate libraries: books that should be included in all undergraduate libraries, those that a library should have if the college offers a course in either of these areas, and books that a library would need to support undergraduate area studies. The graded draft was then produced and circulated to a panel of college librarians and other consultants for revision. This is a new approach consisting of the following features: information on the availability of each title; computer production; grading as to significance; and keying to critical reviews.
