The Slavic and East European Materials Project (SEEMP) recently microfilmed twelve newspaper and newsletter titles from Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, spanning 1988-2010.
The materials were collected by Dr. William Fierman, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Central Eurasian Studies at Indiana University. Microfilming of this set was funded by the first of three allocations planned by SEEMP to preserve the collection amassed by Dr. Fierman. Additional sets of the Fierman newspapers will be microfilmed in the next two years.
Akram Khabibullaev, Librarian for Middle Eastern, Islamic, and Central Eurasian Studies at Indiana University, and Wook-Jin Cheun, Librarian for Slavic and East European Studies at Indiana University, assisted in getting these materials to SEEMP for preservation.
