Iran's National Library Archive Will Go Online


News Category: Cultural

 29 December 2005



LONDON, CAIS -- Head of Iran National Library and Documents Organization Ali Akbar Ash’ari said that invaluable books from the national library have been digitalized and will be accessible on website by the first half of the next Iranian year (beginning March 21, 2006).

He told reporters that the organization has decided to provide researchers and those interested in Iranian history and culture access to a major part of its archive of books and documents on the Internet.

The organization will provide academic centers with an index of books and documents maintained at the library for use as topics of research studies and treatises of university graduates, he noted.

Ash’ari said that Iran’s National Library and Documents Organization plans to sign agreements with its counterparts in other countries to exchange books and documents for research studies.

He recalled that an accord with Poland’s institute for national documents and reference library was the latest agreement it has signed with a foreign country.

The official said that very significant documents and reference books are being kept at the library and called for government’s contribution in maintaining national cultural heritage.

Asked whether the organization was ready to buy old books, he said that a special committee of prominent figures and historians has been set up to evaluate precious books.

Ash’ari said that designing comprehensive software for Iran National Library has been completed and it will be installed soon.
