More About the Bibliotheca Alexandrina
In fulfillment of its mission as a center of excellence for the dissemination of knowledge and for dialogue, learning and understanding between cultures and people, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA) has developed a growing interest in issues relating to access to knowledge, promotion of innovation and creativity and intellectual property.
BA has initiated several activities to spread the philosophy of access to knowledge (A2K) and build local capacity of researchers, librarians and practitioners to effectively implement new and emerging A2K tools and practices. It is within this context that BA has organized the first seminar on new tools for the dissemination of knowledge and the promotion of innovation and creativity in the Arab world and the region.Posted 16 May 2007
