Serial Murder in Southeast Asia: Collecting and Preserving Serials in Changing Landscape.
Mitchell, Carol L.
This paper surveys the loss of important serials from and about Southeast Asia. At risk titles are described, including statistical serials, publications of regional presses, minority language magazines, science and technology journals, political and non-governmental organization publications, popular or mass press publications, women's magazines, magazines about electronics, and children's publications. The following problems and issues are then discussed: physical conditions of libraries and archives; war and turmoil; weak bibliographic control; scattered collections; secrecy and censorship; indexing and bibliographic access; training and expertise; privatization; shifts in collection management philosophy; shifting attitudes and laws regarding copyright; and electronically formatted titles. The conclusion lists institutions that might participate in an international Southeast Asian librarianship and suggests an action agenda. (Contains 18 references.) (MES)
