The Whereabouts of Iraqi National Library Collection

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on April 28, 2003

See In This Library’s Tale, Seeds Of Mistrust and Hope in Iraq, from today’s Wall Street Journal (subscription req’d) that provides new information concerning the whereabouts of much of the collection ransacked from Iraq’s National Library. “Now, a prime chunk of the library is sitting in Sheik Timimi’s mosque in a Baghdad slum, under the orders of the Shiite establishment.” No doubt an evolving story. I will post updates as they become available.
