Number of calls: 3
Issues: A user was looking for old world and new world maps showing the birthplace of cities:
· Old world: tepe gawra, naqada, harappa, knossos, aksum, jericho, kojdi, phaistos
· Newworld: tikal, la venta, chichen itza
I was not able to help him. I searched the library subject specialists list, but there was not a specialist in maps. So I gave him Sherri Vokey’s contact info. I also asked the user’s email address. If anybody could find the info, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, I am searching for it myself.
Projects: I continued working on the project of checking databases’ subject terms.
I found that two groups of databases are identical:
1. MENALIB and Middle East Virtual Library (MENALIB) Periodical Contents
2. NDLTD and Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD)
It might be unnecessary to point out this, but just in case.
