The interest of the Library of Congress (LC), the de facto national library of the US and the largest library in the world, in the NA’s publications is motivated by the richness of its documented contents on the reality of the Emirates before and after the Union was established. These books are of great interest to researchers and academics visiting Arab and foreign libraries to study the history of the Emirates. These books also offer accurate documentation of the cultural and civilisational heritage of the state and the establishment of its union, supported by pictures, maps and statistics.
Abdullah Al Majed Al Ali, Executive Director of National Archives, said, “What the National Archives’ publications have achieved, with their important contents, is enough to encourage major libraries to obtain them, as they meet the needs of knowledge enthusiasts and researchers in the history of the UAE and the Gulf region.”
