Cheryl Porter will discuss her recent work in Egypt, including her
management of a Thesaurus Islamicus Foundation (TIF) project to
survey Islamic manuscripts at the National Library and Archives of
Egypt and other cultural institutions in Cairo. Ms Porter will
discuss the goals of the TIF project, the development of the survey
instrument, and provide a status update on the project. Ms Porter
will also discuss recent efforts to address conservation training
and education in Egypt, particularly in light of recent political
events.  The lecture will have broad appeal to conservators,
scholars of Islamic thought, and those interested in the current
political situation in Egypt and its effect on cultural
institutions.

The lecture will be held in the Peggy Dow Helmerich Auditorium of
the recently renovated Annie May Swift Hall, located next to the
University Library.  To learn more about the extraordinary
renovation of this historic Northwestern landmark, please visit

view, and conservators from Northwestern University Library will be
available to answer questions about a survey of the manuscript
collection which is currently in progress.
