Description
Foreword

The Central Institute of Indian Languages (CIIL) library has a rich depository of materials that are generally not available in ordinary and even specialized collections. These include Microfilms, Microfisches, Film strips, Slides, Old Gramaphone records, CD-ROMs and numerous types of audio and video CDs besides audio and Video cassettes. These apart, the library also has a very rich collection of maps and atlases as well as charts, diagrams and reports that would be invaluable to the present and future generation researchers in linguistics and related disciplines including Indian languages. The photographs and palm leaves and dissertation copies in both print and microfilm formats only add to these.

That the library is rich in books and journals including back numbers are facts known to all linguists and specialists of Indian languages. But most users are not even aware of its variety and richness in non-book materials. The present list prepared in the best traditions of Bibliography-making could be of great use for many of us who would perhaps be able to save a lot of labor and time in running around different libraries in the country to access such information and materials.

I would like to congratulate the library and Bhasha Bharathi teams for having come up with a useful product which all of us should be able to access through the web as well as in print. Comments, suggestions and enquiries are all welcome. executed.

INTRODUCTION

The Central Institute of Indian Languages Library, in addition to its rich collection of books, has acquired non-book, non-print and multi-media resources. They include materials that accompany published books and periodicals, and products purchased separately such as microfilms, CDs, etc. Though these resources have been available since the time of inception of the library, with the advent of computers, powerful library management software, and online CD-Share device, they are much more accessible to users today. Most of the multimedia resources have been digitized and made available in the library OPAC (Internet) or on CD-Share device (intranet). With a single click, these materials allow the readers to listen/view required information sitting in their work station.

The present bibliography is an attempt to bring together all the non-book resources of the CIIL Library at one place and bring it to the knowledge of readers. Few months earlier, similar steps were teken for the collection of Maps in the CIIL Library, and a separate Map section was developed. Now all the Maps are laminated and ready to use. A ‘Multimedia Section’ on similar lines, was developed recently. The microfilm collection refers to Thesis & Dissertation and the microfiche form covers Journals, Census of India - district census handbooks, Imperial gazetteers from 1872 to 1951, Imperial Gazette of India, State assembly debates on language policies of Karnataka, Maharashtra and Gujarat etc.

The film strips collection includes "Origin of different languages’, "Encyclopedias for children", "LadyBird series" etc. The audio tapes and video cassettes consist of language teaching tools, epics like Ramayana in various languages, dictionaries, children’s encyclopedia, SchoolNet tools, etc. Gramophone records and slides collection is related to language teaching, psychological aptitude tests and few discs accompanying journals. CD-ROMS include both educational and entertainment topics. Maps collection include topo sheets consisting of both restricted and un-restricted maps of India and other related materials such as atlas, charts, wall maps, etc. Photographs are on story and development of Indian scripts, Tamrapatra, palm Leaf, etc. Theses in manuscript form are related to language and linguistics.

Among the items mentioned in Table‘, items 3 to 6 are digitized and 1 and 2 are partially digitized. Microfilms for example, will be digitized on user priorities. In this direction, a microfilm reader, connected to a computer, is available in the library. Digitized content can be accessed through a computer instead of different media for different materials such as tape recorder, record player, microfilm reader, microfische reader and VCR, and at the same time they may be preserved for posterity in a secured manner.

Each entry in the bibliography has a unique running number. The arrangement in the bibliography is author alphabetical for entries having author's name followed with title, imprint and accession number.
