Many changes have happened in the world. One change is the growing curiosity of other cultures. One way to learn about other cultures is through literature. The purpose of this thesis is to present an annotated bibliography of Asian literature for the public library. Since Asia covers a large area, this thesis will only view literature from India, China, and Japan.
Two public libraries, two college libraries, and reference books were examined to get an impression of books that should be in a public library. To be able to pick constantly the best books, a library needs a selection policy.
Based on the information acquired, an annotated bibliography was made of literature from Asia. A discovery from this bibliography is that many of the books have old copyright dates. If the translations are the best available, then the age of the copyright should not matter.
