Section 104(n) of the Agricultural Trade Development and Assistance Act of 1954 (established by Public Law 85-931, approved Sept. 6, 1958) authorizes the Librarian of Congress to use foreign currencies accruing under this act to provide information of technical, scientific, cultural, or educational significance to the United States through the collection of foreign library materials and the distribution of copies thereof to libraries and research centers in the United States. The program is being continued on a full year's basis in three countries in 1963: India, Pakistan, and United Arab Republic. It is proposed to continue the program in 1964 on a slightly expanded basis in these countries. Also the initiation of similar programs in Burma, Indonesia, and Israel on a 6-month basis is proposed. Of the total amount requested, $898 thousand will be used to purchase foreign currencies, while $80 thousand will provide U.S. dollar support.
1. Acquisition of books and other library materials.Based upon the information received during the exploratory stage concerning materials available in the three
additional countries and the requirements of other Federal agencies and certain research libraries in the United States, publications and other library materials will be purchased in multiple copies from six countries and distributed to selected libraries and research centers in the United States, including the Library of Congress.
2. Bibliographic listings.--Accessions lists of materials acquired in the six countries will be prepared and distributed to libraries and research centers in the U.S. to inform scholars of the range of books, serials, and other library materials available under this program. Cataloging information will also be provided.
3. Operation of centers.—Centers staffed with foreign nationals and a limited number of U.S. personnel will handle acquisition, listing, cataloging, and microfilming.
