The collection comprises periodicals collected by Do Dinh Tuan and published outside of Vietnam in the Vietnamese language.
Do collected a broad spectrum of titles that document the concerns and interests of the Vietnamese emigrant community following
the collapse of South Vietnam in 1976. As a whole, the periodicals reflect the challenges refugees faced as they built new

English as a Second Language (ESL) books, English and Vietnamese dictionaries, books about the Vietnam War, and translated
