Abstract

Western Libraries at Western Washington University began collecting Mongolian materials in earnest in 1975, when the University's Center for East Asian Studies created a Mongolian Program unique in North America. Most of the books and journals have been acquired through the efforts of Professor Henry Schwarz, who made many of the purchases during his frequent trips to Mongolia. He was also instrumental in obtaining the important collection of Mongolian and related materials acquired by the noted scholar Nicholas Poppe.

The Bibliotheca Mongolica, published in 1978, and Mongolian Publications at Western Washington University, published in 1984, represent the Center’s first efforts to enable worldwide access to the collection. In 1990, the range and importance of this collection received national recognition, when the United States Department of Education awarded the Libraries a Strengthening Research Library Resources Program grant to complete the cataloging of the Mongolian-language materials. Our Asian languages cataloger and bibliographer, Mr. Wayne V. Richter, carried out the project in consultation with Professor Schwarz.

The focus of the collection is in the social sciences and humanities, but the library has an abundance of collateral material in other fields and in many languages other than Mongolian. This Mongolian Studies collection is intended not only as a resource for the scholarly activities of the Center's faculty and students, but as a resource for Mongolists throughout the world. Professor Schwarz and Mr. Richter, with the support and encouragement of the Libraries, have made this volume possible.
