About

The Greater Mekong Sub-region Resource Centre (GMSRC) is a hub of information for regional specialists. Established in 2004 as a component of the Mekong Sub-region Social Research Centre (MSSRC) at the Faculty of Liberal Arts, Ubon Ratchathani University, the centre collates information that focuses on the social aspects of Greater Mekong Sub-regional studies. GMSRC staff constantly survey and compile information pertaining to the GMS to update our online database. Abstracts are translated into Thai and English to increase accessibility to this information across the region. By furthering academic enquiry into the Mekong the GMSRC hopes to increase information flow and knowledge sharing.

 


Rationale

The Greater Mekong Sub-region Resource Centre (GMSRC) is designed to support academics, researchers and students in the study of the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS). Our mission is to compile multi-disciplinary resources in a variety of languages, spanning six GMS countries and make this collection available to researchers, educators and students. It is the centre's hope that this collection will address problems of limited accesibility to information that has hampered Mekong studies in the past.

 

 


Objectives

  To support academic staff, students and researchers in the study of people and place in the GMS through a resource centre of Mekong related materials and as an arm of the Mekong Sub-region Social Research Centre (MSSRC) at the Faculty of Liberal Arts, Ubon Ratchathani University, Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand.

•  To constantly strengthen and expand services for patrons.

•  To further develop our collection to include a variety of visual and textual materials, espcially difficult to find materials such as working papers, primary documentation, local publications and films on the region.

•  We also strive to support researchers working on the GMS within our capacity.
