MetadataShow full item record
Reports results of a survey, based largely on published sources but supplemented by visits to certain countries, of the current state of libraries and information in the Near East and Central Asia. The following countries were included in the survey: Armenia; Azerbaijan; Bulgaria; Cyprus; Georgia; Israel; Kazakhstan; Kyrgyzstan; Lebanon; Syria; Tajikstan; Turkey; Turkmenistan; Uzbekistan; West bank and Gaza. The report begins with a country survey, devoted to the historical, political, economic and educational background of each country, and a description of the major national libraries, academic libraries, special libraries and public libraries in each country, concentrating on development since the mid 80s. This is followed by an analysis and review of some common features of the libraries and contrasts between the countries or groups of countries. Particular attention is paid to CD-ROM and document delivery services, bibliographic record formats, conservation of library materials and national library and information policies.
