Cuban Acquisitions and Bibliography. Proceedings and Working Papers of an International Conference Held at the Library of Congress, April 13-15, 1970.
Pariseau, Earl, Ed.
Twenty-seven scholars and librarians compare Cuban holdings in various European countries, discuss research programs relating to Cuba at United States institutions, draw up guidelines for a Cuban bibliography, and explore ways to overcome problems in acquiring Cuban materials through exchange and purchase. In addition to workingpapers, the book contains background information on the conference and a proceedings and recommendations section that includes a list of participants, agenda, a list of institutions in Cuba which exchange publications with the Library of Congress, and recommendations to remove present obstacles hindering institutional and individual scholarly contacts between the United States and Cuba. The major portion of the book is devoted to five working papers. The first provides the non-specialist with a useful guide to significant literature in the Cuban collections of the Library of Congress in the fields of literature, history, political science, international relations, and economics, and includes specialized collections. The other four working papers deal with problems of United States University research libraries in acquiring Cuban library materials, and with resources in the United Kingdom, Spain, and Germany for the study of Cuba.
