Translation Studies: Planning for Research Libraries

WithAnne Leibold, Charles W. Brownson

Our purpose is to draw attention to the neglected field of translation studies in U.S. library collections. By “translation studies” we mean those studies which concern themselves with “the problems raised by the production and description of translation.” 1 We mean to take in not only the collecting of translations themselves, but also the collecting of those sources necessary to identify and describe translations in their various versions, and to study the environment in which they have come about and been accepted in the target literature.
