Selecting and Acquiring Library Materials for Chinese Studies in Academic Libraries
Wei, Karen T.
Acquisitions Librarian, v16 n31-32 p55-65 2004
Focusing on academic libraries in North America, this article describes the selection and acquisition of library materials for Chinese Studies from the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. It provides an historical overview of the Chinese book publishing and exporting practice, identifies and evaluates current online and printed resources for selection and methods of acquisition, and discusses the problems commonly faced by academic libraries. It also addresses the current state of book publishing and book exporting operations as they respond to China's new status as a member of the World Trade Organization and what this means to libraries in North America.
