IALL Conference

Next month is the annual meeting of the IALL. This is the International Association of Law Libraries and this year the conference is being organized at the University of Malaya. The meeting is located at a very good place for me as the Law School and Library at the University of Malaya can serve as a model for Qatar University College of Law and Library. The Faculty of Law at UM was the first college of law in the country of Malaysia, supports multi-lingual collections and patrons in English, Arabic, Bahasa Malaysia. The library has a large collection of Islamic Law. International law collections with focus on oil and gas, arbitration, and ADR are also applicable as models to Qatar University College of Law and library. The University of Malaya Tan Sri Professor Ahmad Ibrahim Law Library developed a functional/multilingual website and blog. Like the QU law library, it is also a part of the Main Library of the University. 

I look forward to the IALL meeting and will apply what I learn to the development of library services in Qatar.
