Scope and Content of Collection

The Nasser Sharify papers document his long career as a librarian, academic, advocate, and consultant. The papers relate 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.
The largest series of the collection contains records relating to the planning and construction of the Pahlavi National Library in Iran from 1975 to 1977. As chairman of the board of consultants on the project, Sharify brought together librarians and information professionals from around the world to create a plan for the operation of the library, as decreed by Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi and overseen by the deputy minister of the imperial court of Iran for cultural affairs, Shojaeddin Shafa. The resulting nine volume report is included in the collection along with supporting documents, draft reports, consultant correspondence, contracts, minutes, and recordings of planning conferences.
As evidenced by this project, Sharify spent much of his career promoting international librarianship as a profession. The collection includes essays, reports, research materials, and correspondence relating to library education, cataloging practices, and book distribution in the United States, Iran, and Morocco from the 1950s to 1970s. In addition, Sharify's work with the Pratt Institute Graduate School of Library and Information Sciences, CENTO, and Unesco resulted in documents relating to international librarianship.
The International Library Manpower materials in the Conference, Institutes, and Workshops materials series include data collected from over fifty countries around the world, summarizing social, economic, and political conditions in relation to library education and resources.
Other materials of note include research materials related to Sharify's work on developing a transliteration and cataloging standard for Persian library materials. His work on this project, in the Research Projects series, included surveying libraries in the U.S. with Persian materials in their holdings.
A well-known figure in the library community, Sharify was highly active in a number of library associations, including the American Library Association (ALA), International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA), and the Association for Library and Information School Education (ALISE). Materials collected from conferences and meetings of these associations are included in the Professional Associations' Meetings and Offices Held in Professional Associations files. Among these materials are Sharify's speeches and writings from the conferences.

Arrangement

The arrangement of the collection follows a classification scheme developed by a former student of Nasser Sharify, for the purpose of donating the papers to the archives. In this classification scheme, each activity or project in Sharify's career is identified by a letter. For example, the creation of the Pahlavi National Library of Iran is identified by the letter "A"; materials from Offices Held in Professional Associations by the letter "K" and so on. Groups of documents related to each activity receive a numerical designation. There is no significance to the order which the groups are arranged or numbered. For example, materials in series "A" Pahlavi National Library have the following numbers as subseries or file:
A. Pahlavi National Library
A-1. Press, National and International
A-1/1. Comments by other professionals
A-2. Articles, brochures, and other printed matter about the PNL
Incremental materials are described using the same classification and series titles are repeated wherever related documents appear.
