Afghan Center at Kabul University and the University of Arizona Libraries: Afghan Digital Library; Afghan Digital Repository

The University of Arizona Libraries (UAL), in partnership with the Afghanistan Centre at Kabul University (ACKU), is collaborating on a digitization project “Preserving and Creating Access to Unique Afghan Records.” The goal of this project is to collect, catalog, digitize, and create metadata in providing access to this unique collection. The collection contains information related to history, social, economic, and cultural heritage of Afghanistan. ACKU’s collection is the most extensive in the region covering a time of war and social upheaval in the country, with most of the documents in the principal languages of Pashto and Dari. This project is being funded from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).
