Dear Reader,

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

DK: A reliable source for Indian Books, South Asian books and MARC 21 records

06 Jan 2011

D.K. Agencies (P) Ltd., New Delhi, India

"With a modest beginning in the international book-market: as promoters of indigenous publications, in 1968, we have gone on to take a leap forward -- without ever looking back. Today, we are among the top-ranking service organizations in India, superbly coping with a global clientele -- ranging from North American libraries to Latin American societies, from Austral-Asian universities to Afro-Asian academies, West European research centres to Scandinavian institutions of learning. [...] Indian book industry is today a giant [there are over 40,000 publishers - ed.]. It produces every year about 7,000 books in English language alone, besides many-times-more modern Indian languages' publications. # DK's search/selection mechanisms identify even the most obscure title or the obscurest of publishers because their motivated "Selection Division" is always on its toes tracking down the newest of books/monographs, their specifically-created cell monitors all scholarly events and their proceedings, their continually updated database is almost an exhaustive source of information on all current/in-print titles. # DK's specialised procurement efforts fulfil over 95% of the ordered items whether published by private publishing houses, government (central, state, local), research institutions, learned bodies, or even individuals. high-priced, very low-priced or even unpriced."
