Subject: URGENT RE LOC TEMP. HIRING
Thursday, Jan. 28, 10:30 AM
Divisions at the LOC have been told that there is $150,000
available for temporary contract employees to work on arrearage
reduction, and that each division should submit proposals, with
names of candidates if possible. We need to have the proposals
in today if possible (sic).
Can you suggest people in the Washington area or able to be
here for a while that might be able and willing to work on
arrearage reduction projects? In general library or formal area
studies expertise is useful but not necessary. Some possible
projects, in no priority: Making serial record and preparing for
binding large number of serials in Southeast Asian languages
using the Roman script (Malay, Indonesian,Filipino languages).
Organizing Thai bound serials
Organizing Thai or Vietnamese ephemera
Prepping Vietnamese newspapers for microfilming microfilming.
Cataloging Tibetan books with assistance of professional
Shelving bound vols. of serials by call no. or alphabetically by
Cataloging 550 Sanskrit mss.

The only person who comes to mind is Lloyd Anderson at Ecological
Linguistics. He has a Ph.D. in Southeast Asian studies. While he may
not be available himself, he seems to know who is up to what in SEA studies.
Last known address is: P.O. Box 15156; Washington, D.C. 20003.

Subject: Re: Rigveda
In contrast to folks like Richard Cohen and Michio Yano, I do find
Subhash Kak's postings to be original and thought provoking. They
certainly are in the spirit of this list which I understand to be a
discussion of classical India. Since the Rigveda is the core of
Indian culture, a new insight into its structure and meaning is
certainly of great interest to me and other Indologists.
Linkage of resignations from this list to Dr Kak's postings, seems
more spite rather than a scholarly observation.
Furthermore, Michio Kano is to be reminded that Al-Biruni is no
great authority on classical Indian literature. His comment can
equally be applied to any culture, including his own.
