QNL Signs MoU to Digitize Historical Records

Qatar National Library (QNL), and the French Diplomatic Archives, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for collaboration in mutual areas of interest. The collaboration will allow for increased engagement, including joint research projects, between the two institutions.

Dr. Sohair Wastawy, executive director of QNL, said yesterday in a statement, the MoU is the first step towards an ambitious project to digitize the Archives’ historical records about Qatar, and the Gulf region and publish it in Qatar Digital Library. She pointed out that these records will greatly enrich our existing Gulf research collection and benefit all those who are interested in the history and heritage of Qatar and the region.
