The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) presented a letter of thanks to the Center for Cataloging and Information Systems of the Library and Manuscripts House of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, as one of four libraries in the world and the only one in Iraq to receive this praise, which was the result of the preparation and writing the voluntary report for their countries.
This was published on IFLA official website by recognizing libraries as partners in implementing the 2021 Sustainable Development Goals, and in the field of experiences by participating in the voluntary national review process.
The Director of the Center in the Library of the Department of Intellectual and Cultural Affairs, Mr. Hassanein Al-Mousawi, told Al-Kafeel Network, that: "This praise came following the participation of the Cataloging and Information Systems Center in the first Voluntary National Review process of the Vision of Sustainable Development 2021 (VNRS), and this report took us time to prepare it, and great efforts have been made in it, such as participating in relevant conferences and events, because we are one of the contributors to this vision, in addition to our participation in workshops with the Ministry of Planning.”
Al-Mousawi explained that: "Cooperation is continuing with the ministries and relevant authorities in this field, and this report was a good opportunity to introduce what the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine library has reached, which was presented by the Iraqi Ministry of Planning at the high-level political forum in New York last June, which aimed to announce the first national report for the vision of sustainable development in 2030."
It is noteworthy that the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), is the most important international organization representing the interests of libraries, information facilities and users, and is the voice of librarians in the world, and includes members from (150) countries around the world.
