Travels in Southeastern Europe

Description

This collection contains 4 accounts of travel in southeastern Europe, containing a significant portion devoted to Bosnia and Hercegovina. The texts were chosen because they were not copyright restricted, had coverage that fit the above profile, and duplicated holdings in University of Michigan Library's collection, which were either copies or microfilms. The four texts are: Bosnie et Herzegovin: Souvenirs de Voyage pendant l'Insurrection, by Charles Yriarte, published in Paris by E. Plon et Cie, 1876; Dalmatia: the Land Where East Meets West, by Maude M. Holbach, published in London and New York by John Lane, 1910; The Balkan Peninsula, by Emile de Laveleye, published in New York and London by G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1887; and Travels in the Slavonic Provinces of Turkey-in-Europe, by G. Muir Mackenzie and A.P. Irby, published in London by Daldy, Isbister & Co., 1877. There are approximately 200 titles that describe southeastern Europe, and in particular, Bosnia and Hercegovina, throughout history. Of these, University of Michigan Library houses 100, excluding the 4 texts mentioned above.

Description

The MLA International Bibliography is a subject index for books, articles and websites published on modern languages, literatures, folklore, and film. It is produced by the Modern Language Association (MLA), an organization dedicated to the study and teaching of language and literature. The electronic version of the Bibliography dates back to 1925 and contains over 2 million citations from more than 4,400 periodicals (including peer-reviewed e-journals) and 1,000 book publishers. It is compiled by the staff of the MLA Department of Bibliographic Information Services with the cooperation of more than 100 contributing bibliographers in the United States and abroad. Such international coverage is represented by literature from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South America, and while the majority of records are from English-language publications, at least sixty other languages are represented including French, Spanish, German, Russian, Portuguese, Norwegian, and Swedish.

Sociological Abstracts

Alternative Titles
Soc Abs, Soc Abstracts

ProQuest Sociological Abstracts
Description

Sociological Abstracts abstracts and indexes the international literature in sociology and related disciplines in the social and behavioral sciences. The database provides abstracts of journal articles and citations to book reviews drawn from over 1,800 serials publications, and also provides abstracts of books, book chapters, dissertations, and conference papers. Many records from key journals in sociology, added to the database since 2002, also include the references cited in the bibliography of the source article.

Each individual reference may also have links to an abstract and/or to other papers that cite that reference; these links increase the possibility of finding more potentially relevant articles. These references are linked both within Sociological Abstracts and across other social science databases available on ProQuest.

Updated monthly, with approximately 30,000 records added per year. (Description from the publisher's website.)

Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Division

Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies is the descriptor frequently used for the area covered by our Division in the library.  We collect materials from and/or about Eastern Europe, Mongolia, Modern Greece, Russia and all the Soviet successor states including those in Transcaucasia and Central Asia, in languages used by those countries.  The Division selects, orders, catalogs and maintains these materials.  We also select materials in West European languages about countries in our area of coverage, and they are cataloged elsewhere in the library. 

Ours is one of the country's largest such collections, one that is especially strong in languages, literatures, history, social sciences, art and bibliography.  The best-represented countries are Russia, Poland, the Yugoslav successor states (especially Bosnia and Hercegovina), and the Czech Republic/Slovakia.  Notable holdings include, in all formats, the Greek American experience, Russian revolutionary movements, Russian and East European dissident writings, modern Armenian history and literature, the Silver Age of Russian Literature, Southeast European travel literature, and serial publications of the East European academies.  A current priority is development of our Central Asian, Armenian and Modern Greek holdings.  Our acquisitions are mostly purchased, but we also receive books as gifts or on exchange with peer institutions in the U.S. and abroad.  The Slavic Division also participates in consortia and federal programs for resource creation, preservation, and acquisition.  

Information concerning our staff can be found on the Area Programs home page

Collection Size

Approximately 500,000 monographs and serials in the vernacular,

50,000 titles in Western languages and 16,500 items in nonprint media, including microforms and electronic resources.

Among the 86 different languages represented in the collection, the majority of holdings is in: East Slavic- 302,000 items, South Slavic- 76,000 items, West Slavic- 100,000 items, Central Asian, South Russian and Caucasian  languages- 21,000.  All these figures are approximate .
