Africana acquisitions; report of a publication survey trip to Nigeria, southern Africa, and Europe, 1972 by Julian W Witherell( Book )

4 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A publication survey trip to Nigeria, Southern Africa, and Europe was taken by Julian W. Witherell of the African Section of the Library of Congress in 1972. The purpose of the trip was to improve the flow of publications about Africa to the Library of Congress. The trip was successful in that personal contacts helpful in obtaining local materials were strengthened and the interest in exchanging publications was stimulated. However, the author concludes that the success of the Nairobi acquisitions office indicates that the most effective method of acquisitions of African material would be the establishment of additional acquisitions offices in Africa. Descriptions of the publishing situation in Nigeria, South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Mozambique, Angloa, Spain, Italy, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Sweden, the German Federal Republic and Great Britain are presented.
