Conservation book donations sought in Iraq

User menu


The newly founded National Institute for the Preservation of Iraqi Cultural Heritage in Erbil is receiving help from AIC in putting together its library. The Iraqi National Institute will carry out training in conservation, museum management, historic preservation and archaeology, but to do this, it first needs help putting together its library.

AIC members Jessica Johnson, Ruth Norton and others have compiled a preliminary list for the library. The University of Delaware, one of the partners with the Institute, is collecting the books together for shipment. Each book will have a book plate added indicating who donated the book in English, Arabic, and Kurdish.

AIC asks that you please check your personal libraries for any of these books you are willing to part with and if you have others that are not on the list but you think would be useful to the Institute, they will be gratefully accepted.
