Baghdad Biblio-Files an infrequently-updated blog about rebuilding Iraq’s libraries.
Thursday’s meeting at the University of Baghdad went really well. They are probably going to be the library in the best shape. It does have some burned out areas, but like the national library did, the dean sealed the doors and bricked them over, so their collection, and their cataloging records are intact. Probably the biggest problem that they have is white ants. They have to treat once a year, and I think they weren’t able to treat for a few years. [thanks pauline]
