Database for National Library

The National Library of Australia donated $5,150 to the National Library of Cambodia to

support the National Library Development Project. The project will allow the

National Library to produce a much-needed Cambodian National Bibliography

database and publication, according to an Australian Embassy press release.

Funds will also be used to enable the library to purchase recently-published

Khmer-language books for their collection.

HRH Princess Bopha Devi,

Minister of Culture, and Australian Ambassador Malcolm Leader, joined National

Library officials on May 5 for a small ceremony to highlight the project.
