Funds are requested to digitize a number of rare serial titles from the Bob Jones Indochina Collection. These materials, collected by Jones while stationed in Saigon during the War, are mostly brittle or in poor condition. Two of the titles are already held by Cornell, and we intend to amalgamate our holdings, digitizing the better volumes from both collections.
