Locating West and South Asian Research Material.
Harvey, John F.
Although numerous outstanding research collections as well as able professional librarians exist in South and West Asia, many people find Asian libraries difficult to use. Often researchers need specialized data which is hard for them to locate in the limited time available. This paper's purpose is to provide practical suggestions for scholars about overcoming the difficulties of using Asian libraries. It is intended to assist researchers in all fields, including those working on dissertations, and is written to help them change a frustrating and disappointing year into one more rewarding. These remarks are applicable for those parts of Asia which the author has visited: India, Pakistan, eleven more moslem, one Hebrew and one Christian country extending West to the U.A.R. and North to Turkey--and for those researchers whose material location problems are similar to the Asian reference problems with which the author has already dealt. (LI 004244 through 004262 and LI 004264 through 004267 are related.) (Author/NH)
