See the latest Indonesian Acquistion Lists (IAL)

The Indonesian Acquisitions List (IAL) details books and serials published in Indonesia which have been recently acquired by the National Library of Australia through its Regional Office in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The IAL was produced monthly. The IAL include hyperlinks from the items listed to the National Library's catalogue. By clicking on the hyperlink a reader can go straight to the catalogue record for that title and request the item immediately if they have a reader’s card. 

Arrangement and Content of Entries

Each issue of the IAL details all items included in the most recent consignments despatched from the Regional Office.

New serial titles acquired for the National Library's collections during the period are listed alphabetically in the first section. Monographs acquired for both the National Library and participants form the second section, with entries arranged within broad subject classes. The appendix lists the serial and newspaper titles which are despatched to the National Library in Canberra twice weekly, so that the most recent issues are available for use in the Library's reading rooms promptly. There is no index to the Indonesian Acquisitions List

Use of the Library's Indonesian Collection

All items listed in the IAL are fully catalogued onto Libraries Australia, the national database of material held in Australian libraries, and can also be searched on the Library's online catalogue. Material in the Indonesian Collection may be consulted in both the Library's Main Reading Room and the Asian Collections Reading Room. Remote users may request material on interlibrary loan. Requests to borrow material from the collection should be made through the interlibrary loan service in your library. Interlibrary loan requests should include full bibliographic details of the items plus the National Library call number.
