Library of Congress has reduced its collecting level of Chinese language materials published outside of China. The Asian Division will be very selective in the titles it selects from Southeast Asia. CAPSEA needs to designate either one or two libraries to assume this role of library of last resort for those library resources no longer acquired by the Library of Congress. If more than one library can assume this responsibility, we will divide receipts as evenly as possible to ensure continued national-level access to the materials. I am working to develop a workflow and cost estimate in order to ensure the continued development of this body of library resources.
This will certainly be a topic at the upcoming meeting (a fuller agenda is forthcoming). In the meantime, those interested should contact me. It will help me with the planning.
