  1. Thank you Dr Asmaa a very informative read. I especially feel that linking information professionals and what they have to offer to the wider academic community is highly beneficial.

  2. Hi Hiba, one of the things we love the most about this program is finding out that there are so many more similarities than differences between library services around the globe! Thanks for joining in.
