Libraries allow for the transformation of our understanding – British Library and Middle Eastern history
The British Library and Qatar Foundation unveiled an content development project on July 18, 2012 with plans to digitize half a million pages of British activities in the Gulf. The archive material will create a new wealth of real history.
The new digital library project will make history come to life by transforming a part of the British Library building for project based work. The project team size will be 73 staff – 30 existing, 43 new staff positions. Take a look at the Guardian newspaper review of project and ambitions.
