Designed to meet the needs of scholars and researchers interested in China and Asia as well as librarians and library school students, this new reference is the only available book-length research guide to library and information science in mainland China and Taiwan. Consisting of nearly 1,000 antated entries, it lists significant English-language materials--together with important titles in Chinese, French, German, and Japanese--published in the last 100 years. Entries are arranged in eleven broad subject categories, including bibliography and reference, types of libraries, books and printing, history, automation and information services, librarianship education, and international exchange. Detailed citations are provided for books, journal articles, chapters or sections of books, conference papers, theses, dissertations, and ERIC documents. Author and subject indexes are supplied.
