Subscribing to Foreign Journals in Bangladesh.
Siddique, Abu Bakr
The lack of foreign exchange caused serious problems in the acquisition of foreign journals by libraries in Bangladesh during the first years of independence. Although the governments of the United Kingdom and the United States of America (under ODA and AID schemes) have provided financial and other assistance, few institutes have received the journals in complete runs. A major problem for the acquisition of foreign journals seems to be the loss of issues in transit, in addition to increasing costs for subscriptions and postage (registered post and air mail). A cooperative project at the international level might help the universities of Bangladesh to fill in the missing issues. (Author/JEG)
