ISAW donates hundreds of books to the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani
by David RatzanThe ISAW Library donated 362 volumes to the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani, as part of its mission to support and encourage the study and preservation of the ancient world.
The citadel of Erbil in heart of ancient Iraqi Kurdistan, approximately 100 miles northwest of Sulaimani. The citadel’s first occupation layers date to the 5th millennium BCE.
Last week the ISAW Library shipped 19 boxes of duplicate and out-of-scope books to the American University in Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS). The one-time capital of the 18th- and 19th-century Kurdish Baban principality, Sulaimani (or Sulaymaniyah) lies just west of the Kurdish cities of Erbil and Kirkuk in northern Iraq.
Collaboration between the National Library of Greece and the Center for Hellenic Studies
by Christina Lafi
The Center for Hellenic Studies, within the framework of its collaboration with the National Library of Greece (Greek acronym: EBE), has donated to the Library a complete series of its publications, the Hellenic Studies Series. The CHS publishes works by academics of international repute that highlight Hellenic civilization and its humanist values. This donation marks the starting point for the expansion of collaboration between the two institutions in many fields, such as scholarly research, the digitization of manuscripts, the sharing of expertise, seminars on Digital Humanities, etc.
Do you work at a library that is collaborating with another institution abroad? If so, we’d love to hear about it.
