The Impact of Local Literature on Foreign Libraries: a Bibliographic Evaluation of the Modern Greek Literary Generation of Last Decade
MetadataShow full item record
This article presents a bibliographic survey relating to the number of titles in Modern Greek fiction owned by libraries worldwide. Using extracted metadata, mainly via the OCLC WorldCat database and supplemented with records via other popular catalog aggregators (Karlsruhe Virtual Catalog), the most popular 100 titles of the last decade (2008–2018) are ranked by number relative to total holding libraries. Demographic factors, including age and gender, are considered in order to define particular characteristics of the current generation of Greek writers. A special part of the article is devoted to libraries in the US and Australia that have developed the largest library collections of non-translated, Modern Greek fiction titles. ©, Published with license by Taylor & Francis. © David C.
