This section provides an e-library version of the collection available at SEA Junction (Room 408, Bangkok Arts and Culture Centre or (BACC) with resources for download when available in pdf format.

It is a work in progress as many books still remain to be catalogued. Our volunteers are working hard to classify a growing number of donated books complete with abstracts, cover picture and possibly pdf file. After the data are recorded in excel sheets, they are checked and transferred to the e-library database. As we deal with many languages, conversion into English poses spelling and grammar challenges. A more complete quality control will be conducted at a later stage although we try to correct errors as we catch them. We expect the e-library to be fully functioning in a year time, so we ask for your patience until then.

Regarding the software, we have opted to use the Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) operated by (OPenBiblio) because of it being an open library system  easy for administering as well as serching and using the collection. To access SEA Junction E-Library just click on the link below and you will be brought to the OPAC page. Put the name of an author, subject, title or ISBN in the search box and relevant books will be listed. When clicking on any of the titles, the detailed bibliographic info will appear. More advanced searches are also possible following the specific link under the search box. To try SEA Junction Library just click now!
