[BKARTS] Middle East Librarians Association Committee on Iraqi Libraries

Middle East Librarians Association Committee on Iraqi Libraries

The Middle East Librarians Association is a private, non-profit,
non-political organization of librarians and others interested in
those aspects of librarianship which support the study of or
dissemination of information about the Middle East. The area
signified is considered to include those countries from Morocco
through Pakistan as well as other areas formerly included in the
Arab, Ottoman, or Mughal empires.

The MELA Executive Board convened the Committee on Iraqi Libraries to
coordinate the organization's response to the damage and destruction
suffered by libraries in Iraq during and after the war in March and April
2003. The committee is envisioned to be a small task force of MELA members
who have first-hand knowledge of, experience or strong interest in matters
related to libraries in Iraq who will be able to field questions, play the
role of contact and suggest ways to assist in rebuilding efforts.
