The Qatar National Library’s booth at the 25th edition of the Doha International Book Fair last year.

The Qatar National Library (QNL), a member of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), will participate in the 26th Doha International Book Fair.
The fair opens tomorrow at the Qatar National Convention Centre, and the QNL’s booth will be located at C36.
Organised by Dar Al Kutub and the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage, the Doha International Book Fair is an annual event that provides a platform for a diverse range of publishers from Qatar, the region and the world, to showcase their books to the Qatari community.
The QNL booth at this year’s book fair will highlight various sections of the library, including the breadth of resources available through their online databases, training programmes and social engagement activities.
Interactive presentations will offer attendees a glimpse into the rich and varied items comprised within the Heritage Collection, such as rare manuscripts, archival documents and historical photographs.
The QNL booth at the book fair will showcase the library’s landmark initiative, the Qatar Digital Library (QDL), which was launched in October 2014, and provides free access to an extensive online collection of digital resources, and is an invaluable reference point for researchers about the history of Qatar, the Gulf region and the Arab Islamic heritage and sciences.
A demonstration of the QDL will be provided in recognition of the QDL’s one year anniversary. The QNL team will also be on hand to help visitors register for free and have access to the library’s wealth of digital resources.
QNL project director Dr Claudia Lux said: “The 26th Doha International Book Fair provides us with a great opportunity to showcase the library’s various resources, services, and collections and highlight the library’s outstanding contribution to the development of the nation’s educational and research sectors.”
