The Department of the National Library of Jordan

The National Library of Jordan is attached to the Ministry of Culture and works towards the protection and preservation of Jordan’s cultural heritage, with the aim to serve researchers and scholars interested in the cultural and intellectual aspects of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. The National Library was created in 1994 from the merger of the Center for Documents and Documentation and the Department of the National Library, itself having replaced the Department of Libraries and National Documents founded in 1977.
