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.
