in part to the formulation of plans for the creation of a national library for Iran, and to development of library and information
science schools, especially in Iran and Morocco, as well as to the development of international library programs at schools
in the United States. The collection consists of reports, working papers for reports, correspondence, financial and legal
records, minutes, conference papers, printed matter, sound recordings, microfilm, and photographs.
