The compilation of this bibliography began when Professor Dato' Asmah Haji Omar, Director of the Language Center, University of Malaya expressed her willingness to give a talk on Malay dictionaries in january 1987 in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the National Collection Division, University of Malaya Library. The initial objective was to compile a holding list of all Malay/Indonesian vocabularies and dictionaries held in the library. However, because of the vast collection of Malay /Indonesian dictionaries, the coverage was scoped wider. This bibliography attempts to give a broad picture of the state of the art of Malay / Indonesian dictionary publications and documentation, with emphasis on those which are available in Malaysia. The bibliography is mainly based on those found at the National Collection Division, University of Malaya Library in view of the fact that it claims to be one of the oldest academic libraries in Malaysia. Each dictionary/vocabulary has been examined and annotated. The collections from the National Library of Malaysia and the Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka library was also searched.
