Thousand-year-old manuscripts discussed at the BA
Alexandria, 26 September 2004  -- Millenary Manuscripts took center stage at the library Alexandria, as the manuscript center of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina held its first scientific conference. Serageldin delivered an opening address that spelled out the new Alexandria librarys approach to the question of heritage conservation and management. He advocated a proactive approach that encouraged the use of contemporary tools as much for preservation as for study. He argued for the importance that heritage should be a living thing.
