This year, Jakarta Library and Archive Department (Dispusip) plans to add 21,000 book collections and distributes it to Cikini Public Library, Kuningan Public Library, and Jakarta Community Library (Permata) units.
" Our target is to realize this plan in June"
Most of the new collections are requested by librarians and visitors then selected by Dispusip librarians before procurement.
"Our target is to realize this plan in June," stated Jakarta Dispusip's Deposit, Collection Development, Service and Preservation Division Head, Bambang Chidir, Monday (5/20).
From total 21,000 books, he continued, there are 4,000 new book collections which are published in the last three years.
"We will provide new books about social, skill development, fiction, language and religion," he added.
