39th Annual Library Week to Be Celebrated

The 39th annual Library Week in Turkey is being celebrated between March 26 and April 1, 2003. This year’s theme is “Libraries in the Democratization Process”. Within the framework of Library Week, panels, conferences, concerts and seminars will be held. Most events will take place at the National Library including, on Thursday, April 3, at 6:30 p.m. a program presented by four students from Bilkent, Alpan Akgül, Devrim Dirlikyapan, Jale Özata and Çiğdem Kerim, who will perform “Ney Eşliğinde Rubailer” (a recitation of quatrains accompanied by music on a ney flute).
There will also be an exhibition in the entrance of the Bilkent University Library of Turkish and English books focusing on libraries, and numerous newspaper articles on the subject are also on display there.
Library Week is a good occasion to remind our readers that the Bilkent Library offers a wide range of books, journals, articles, CDs, DVDs, VCDs and cassettes. There are special collections, too, in the Main Library, including:
- The European Documentation Center, housing materials on the European Union, and which shares its premises with the U.S. Government Documents Depository Collection,
- The Halil İnalcık Collection of Ottoman History Materials,
- The Audovisual Collection, with microforms, CD-ROMs, compact discs and audiocassettes, and the equipment to use them,
- The Art Room, which houses books and journals on art-related subjects and the Bilkent University Library Turkish Plastic Arts Archive,
- The Music Room, where printed music and sound recordings (including audiocassettes, CDs and phonographic records) are available with listening facilities.
