Collections from Pakistan

Over the past 10 years (2006-2016), the library has acquired 22,000-plus retrospective volumes from Pakistan, many in Urdu. This is in addition to the many thousands of ongoing acquisitions from Pakistan. All are indexed in HOLLIS+, but most (about 85-90%) of this retrospective collection have only provisional cataloging, which means that only fairly basic bibliographic information is present, with informal transliteration.
