Asian Reading Room: Library of Congress

The Indonesian Collection at The Library Of Congress


The Indonesian collection grew from merely 1500 titles in 1963 to become the largest collection of the 11 countries represented in the Southeast Asian Collection at the Library of Congress.  Comprising over 186,000 monographic and serial titles, the majority of the titles are in Bahasa Indonesia, the official language of Indonesia, and are in the custody of the Asian Division. Titles in other formats, such as maps, photographs, musical scores, etc… are held in other custodial divisions.

This research guide is created to aid with your research.  The titles listed in this guide consist of a small but representative sample of the types of materials available in the Asian Division. A few titles from other divisions are also included in this guide due to their relevance and importance to the subject. Currently, no databases exist which focus specifically on Indonesia. The databases included here are scope-specific but contain information only for five countries in Southeast Asia: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam.  Some databases are FREE and can be accessed both from home and at the Library of Congress.  The ON-SITE ONLY label indicates databases which can solely be accessed at the Library of Congress.

This guide is updated periodically with newer and/or more relevant sources.
