This bibliography, published by "Foundation for Information and Documentation Services" (Enformasyon ve Dokumantasyon Hizmetleri Vakfi), comprises of all the newspapers, journals, news agency bulletins, and the other serials published all over the world between 1828 and 1928. The work is in Turkish, English and Arabic.

The work tells the researcher which numbers of which serials and newspapers may be found in which library.

The publications were converted to a reader-friendly format for Turkish and Arabic readers, in accordance with library catalog systems. In order to resolve any problems that may occur in this area, an alphabetical list of Arabic script periodicals has been given as an appendix at the end of the work. The alphabetical order of the periodicals was taken into consideration when giving their code numbers. Publications that were issued in the same title (sub-headings not being included) or which were published with the same name of publisher, were entered alphabetically according to year and location.

The following procedure is taken through the text:

  • indication of the serial number;
  • the name of the periodical (the articles EL or AL were not taken into consideration when compiling the alphabetical list);
  • indication of the names of the publishers and the editors;
  • location of publication and printing;
  • indication of size and other particulars;
  • indication of the period of publication;
  • date of publication of the periodical;
  • indication of notes, reference and language;

Periodicals in Turkish and Turkic languages: A union list of holdings in U.K. libraries

M I Waley

UIUC call number: Q. 011.2943 P418

This Union List, published by Middle East Libraries Committee (U.K.), covers holdings of periodicals and newspapers published wholly or partly in Modern and Ottoman Turkish and in other languages of the Turkic group, regardless of country or date. Libraries covered are those major collections in the U.K. which provided data or partial data, and some others which the editor was able to visit.

The data included in most entries as they appear in print are the following: title, subtitle and /or description, issuing body (where appropriate), designation and date of first and last issue, place of publication and issues held. Many entries have one or more of the following: description note, publication history, language(s) and character(s), frequency, and title cross-reference(s). Cross-references are always made to the Turkish and Turkic title, whether or not this appears as the main title (or first parallel title) in the periodical itself. For periodicals of which the titles have changed, the entry appears under the last or present title.

In this Union List, the criterion for inclusion is linguistic, not geographical. Any periodical is omitted, whether from Turkey or the Ottoman Empire or from elsewhere, which does not include Turkish-language content in an original form in every issue. Not included are European-language academic journals in which Turkish texts are only sometimes edited, or quoted. Contemporary titles in the fields of science and technology will not be found here, excepting a few titles which are anomalously held in the humanities collections of the British Library. That exclusion in no way implies any disregard for the importance of Turkish scientific periodicals, and some which perhaps fall into the intermediate category of "occasional publications". (See introduction in Xerox for more information)

Entries are alphabetically arranged by periodical name.

No index at the end.
