|| ABOUT THIS SITE ||
The Library of Congress Office in Jakarta is one of six overseas offices administered by the African/Asian Acquisitions and Overseas Operations Division of the Library of Congress. The staff acquire, catalog, preserve, and distribute library and research materials from countries where such materials are essentially unavailable through conventional acquisitions methods and provide assistance to the US congress.
This Website is primarily for the use of the participants in the Southeast Asian Cooperative Acquisitions Program (CAPSEA). We welcome new participants worldwide.
|| COOPERATIVE ACQUISITIONS PROGRAMS ||
The staff in Jakarta (LOC-Jakarta) manages the Cooperative Acquisitions Program (CAPSEA) in order to acquire materials from Indonesia, Singapore, Timor Leste ,Vietnam, Chinese Program, and Burma, on behalf of the Library of Congress and member institutions. The programs for Brunei and Malaysia are managed from LOC-Kuala Lumpur , the programs for Thailand and Laos are managed by LOC-Bangkok and the Philippines by LOC Manila.
The goal of the program is to provide valuable research materials to participating academic institutions and public libraries on a cost-recovery basis. We collect materials in more than seven major languages about many different topics. The topics range from education, religion, anthropology, sociology, economics, government and politics, history and current events, geography and the environment, science and technology, literature, medicine, agriculture, to law.
While the majority of the materials acquired are either serials or monographs, maps, non-print materials, and audio-visual materials and e-resources are also collected.
