QNL all set to become regional heritage hub

QNL all set to become regional heritage hub. Gulf Times. 20 August 2015.
     Qatar National Library has been selected by IFLA as the regional Arabic Speaking Preservation and Conservation Centre. There currently are 13 such centers worldwide. The goal is to ensure that library and archive materials in all formats will be preserved in accessible form as long as possible.
The center will represent 25 countries in the Middle East and North Africa where Arabic is one of the official languages and will be helping to preserve the region’s heritage and culture and make them available for future generations. The project activities will include workshops on preventive and active conservation, production of web pages and digital preservation.
