Report
ASSESSMENT OF DAMAGE TO LIBRARIES AND ARCHIVES IN IRAQ

1. Update based on:

2. Libraries in Baghdad:

Roper also lists 7 other manuscript libraries in Baghdad about which no information available.

3. Libraries outside Baghdad: Very little information yet available: a real urgency for this to be collected on the ground. NB It may yet well turn out to be that -as in Baghdad - the staff of libraries in other cities took precautions before the war and evacuated part or all of their collections:

Mosul

Basra

Other Cities

4. General conclusion re: libraries and archives in Iraq:
