The training of Afghan library staff in digitization and modern cataloging procedures, who would then scan and mount on the Internet 6,000 titles selected from the archival collections of the Afghanistan Centre at Kabul University.

The University of Arizona Libraries in partnership with the Afghanistan Centre at Kabul University will collaborate to catalog, digitize, and create metadata for a unique collection of documents related to Afghanistan history, culture, and its development during the Jihad period, 1989 to 2006. ACKU's Permanent 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 English or the principal languages of Afghanistan. The two-year project objectives are to: 1) train staff in standardized cataloguing, metadata creation, and digitization processing; 2) identify and provide international standardized cataloguing and classification (metadata) for 6,000 titles or 15,000 physical unique items; 3) scan, digitize, and preserve these 6,000 titles; 4) facilitate digital access and delivery; and, 5) build a preservation infrastructure at Kabul University that can be a resource for all 19 universities in Afghanistan.
