Libraries in Iraq

As posted to Jerome-L...

Some of you may recall that in early December I had posted the first release of The Library of Congress and the Cultural Property Office of the US Department of State Mission To Baghdad Report on the National Library and the House of Manuscripts from their visit during October 27-November 3, 2003.

Since then, the website for the Committee on Iraqi Libraries has been cataloged by LC see: LCCN = 2003692800, and also that a second and now third, illustrated version (of the report) appeared at the Library of Congress website in December 2003, along with a Press Release announcing that "A 30-minute film titled 'The Library's Mission to Baghdad,' produced by the Library and featuring interviews with the team members, will debut at the American Library Association's 2004 Midwinter Meeting to be held Jan. 9-14 in San Diego, Calif."

There is also a URL for the Middle East Library Association Website on it:


I thought some of you may like to know about this.
