Urdu Publications from Pakistan: Providing Access to Private Collections

Cataloging more than 5,200 humanities texts, including works on history, literature, and religion, published in the Urdu language and recently acquired by the University of Chicago.

The University of Chicago Library proposes a two-year project to catalog more than 5,200 publications in the Urdu language. The books and periodicals are all available at the University because of a generous gift from a private donor, the son of Niaz Fatehpuri, a renowned Pakistani intellectual. At least 4,975 of the catalog records will be unique additions to OCLC’s WorldCat database and more than 230 will be upgrades of brief or deficient records in the database. All of the books will be available via interlibrary loan following cataloging and addition to the University Library collection.
