Thai Journal Index
The Thai Journal Indexing Project,
based at UW Libraries, is part of a
cooperative initiative of the Committee
on Research Materials on Southeast
Asia (a sub committee of the
Association for Asian Studies) to
strengthen access to vernacular journal
literature from Southeast Asia.
This project has been funded for two
years by the Association of Research
Libraries, AAU/ARL Global Resouces
Project. This UW pilot project uses
scanning technology to capture an
abstract, or an introductory paragraph
of journal articles in Thai script.
Searching access is provided by
intellectual content analysis and
transcription of names and titles into
roman script.
Other libraries cooperating with this
project are: the Technical Information
Access Center in Bangkok, the
University of Wisconsin at Madison and
the Center for Research Libraries in
Chicago. This database will allow
researchers to read enough of the
article in the Thai script to determine if they wish to request a copy through interlibrary
borrowing. There is currently no access in North American libraries to Thai journal indexing.

indexed by our partners in Thailand, Wisconsin and Chicago.
Romanization of Thai titles and names is based upon the ALA/LC romanization tables.
