The Jakarta office has exchange relationships with government institutions, universities, and libraries in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, and the Philippines. The office acquires for the Library of Congress via exchange noncommercial publications including government and scientific research reports. Several of the office's official exchange relationships are similar to the depository library program within the United States. Working with the Government Printing Office, the Library provides U.S. government documents in exchange for the official government documents of the recipient country.
With the exception of official exchanges, exchange partners receive publications (usually monographs) based on expressed subject interests. The Jakarta office exchanges commercial publications from the Unites States (although some titles collected from Southeast Asia are also available). Exchange partners receive material of equivalent value generally on a piece-by-piece basis.
Institutions wishing to participate in the exchange program should contact the Jakarta office.
