Mid-Atlantic Directory to Resources for Asian Studies.
Crouch, Archie R., Ed.; Shulman, Frank Joseph, Ed.
This directory of print and human resources in the Mid-Atlantic states provides secondary and college teachers and students with information and assistance in the area of Asian studies. The directory is also a unique resource for leaders responsible for the advancement of understanding between American communities and the peoples of Asia, and a valuable guide for business leaders who need sources of specialized knowledge about the nations of Asia. The kinds of information provided through the various resources include background information concerning the peoples and nations of Asia; teaching aids; enrichment experiences (for example, visits to museums, performing arts, and travel to Asia); guidance information for secondary school students interested in pursuing Asian studies in colleges and universities; and opportunities for continuing education for teachers (for example, special courses, summer study in Asia, seminars, colloquia, and advanced university study). Information in the directory is organized under six major categories: (1) organizations; (2) curriculum development and services; (3) colleges, universities, and academic associations; (4) libraries and information services; (5) museums, galleries and places to visit, and (6) bookstores and book publishers. Each entry provides the name, address, and telephone number of the organization or service and briefly describes the service or program. The titles of newsletters, bulletins, or journals published by the organization are also included. An index of organizations, institutions, and publications concludes the directory. (Author/RM)
