Participating librarians and scholars provide information here about collections, archives and data sets of interest to area and international studies (AIS) research, propose preservation of those collections and the creation of new digital resources from data sets, and vote on the merits of those proposals. Community input provided here informs and guides the building of new AIS resources.
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.
The project continues the work of my proposal from last year to digitize important materials from the Bob Jones collection on Indochina. These materials include some of the larger runs of serials as well as a selection of short runs of Saigon newspapers from the 1960s.
