Koleksi Keratan Akhbar
Zainab Awang Ngah,
A collection of newspaper clippings from four newspapers was started by the National Collection Division in April 1983. One of the objectives of this venture was to enrich available materials on the Malay world, in line with the original concept behind the establishment of the Division. A ttention therefore, was given to disciplines which covered politics, socio-economic conditions, religion and customs of the Malay world, as reflected in Section A [of the list of subjects covered}, given at the end of the article. Cuttings in other areas which touched indirectly on the Malay world or which were found to be of importance and of use to researchers, as shown in Section B, were also collected. To date 17 subject areas are covered which may grow in accordance with the needs of time.

Koleksi Mikroform di Perpustakaan Universiti Malaya: Satu Tinjauan
Azizah Mohammad Nor,
Microform is a generic term for all types of micro photographic reproduction which can be either transparent or opaque or in the form of reels and sheets. Due to its micro size, it can only be viewed by using a microform reader which can bring back its reduced size to the normal size. The microform collection of the UM library arose out of the need to preserve certain library materials such as manuscripts, special collections, theses and academic exercises, papers presented at local conferences and library files etc. in a compact, lightweight and relatively permanent record. This article dicusses briefly the history and functions of the micrographic unit, microform formats, equipment and micrographic services provided in the library.
