Rebuilding Iraq's National Library
Inside Look at Goodwill Mission

Mary-Jane Deeb, an author and media commentator who led a Library of Congress mission to Baghdad, will describe efforts to rebuild that nation's library system in a talk at The Johns Hopkins University on Wednesday, Feb. 18.

Deeb, the Arab World Area specialist at the Library of Congress, will describe her assistance in the reconstruction of Iraq's library during her speech, "The Library of Congress Mission to Baghdad: Assisting with the Reconstruction of Iraq's National Library." The lecture will be open to the public and will take place at 6 p.m. at the Evergreen House at 4545 North Charles St. in Baltimore. A wine and cheese reception will precede the lecture at 5 p.m.

Deeb has worked for the United Nations Economic Commission for Western Asia, UNICEF, Amideast and the U.S. Agency for International Development in Beirut. She also served as a U.N. observer for the June 1997 Algerian legislative elections.

She received her Ph.D. in international relations from Johns Hopkins' Nitze School of Advanced International Studies and her B.A. and M.A. in sociology and anthropology from the American University in Cairo.

The lecture is sponsored by the Friends of the Johns Hopkins University Libraries.
