LCCS in Arabic

Hello MELAnetters!

 

Does anyone have an Arabic guide to LC call numbers? I’m interested in seeing any Arabic language documents related to accessing library collections.

 

Thank you,

Google Chrome and Syriac script

Dear Members,

 

Following a recent Google Chrome update, Syriac script no longer displays correctly (it is now a series of boxes). It is not clear whether this is the result of an error in the update or a policy decision. I wondered whether MELA would have any influence on Google to request that it restore support for Syriac script?

 

For information, Syriac script still displays correctly if one is using Firefox or Internet Explorer.

 

With many thanks,

Straughn, Ian | 20 Jun 02:39 2016

mobile rural library in Egypt

Will this mobile library drive Egyptian kids to read?

More than 50 children in the village of Arab Shams in the Sharqiyah governorate found out that Tales Ride, a bus that drives through Egypt to give free books to children, was going to visit their village on May 17. The children were excited about attending an interesting storytelling session run by the owner of the vehicle, English teacher Haitham al-Sayyed.

Fw: Aristide Caratzas, BA (Columbia), MA, CPhil

Sadly forwarding this, with apologies for any cross-posting.

Carl Sandler Berkowitz
Out-of-Print Books for Scholars



Sent: Friday, June 17, 2016 8:42 PM
Subject: Aristide Caratzas, BA (Columbia), MA, CPhil

I have the sad duty of reporting the untimely passing of Aristide D. Caratzas, academic publisher, professionally trained historian and international policy consultant. He was 70. http://www.ekirikas.com/%CF%80%CE%AD%CE%B8%CE%B1%CE%BD%CE%B5-%CE%BF-%CE%B5%CE%BB%CE%BB%CE%B7%CE%BD%CE%BF%CE%B1%CE%BC%CE%B5%CF%81%CE%B9%CE%BA%CE%B1%CE%BD%CF%8C%CF%82-%CE%B5%CE%BA%CE%B4%CF%8C%CF%84%CE%B7%CF%82-%CE%B1%CF%81/


Aris received his BA in History from Columbia College (NY) in 1967 and his MA/CPhil in History from UCLA in 1973 (under the tutelage of Professor Speros Vryonis Jr).

As an academic publisher, he founded Melissa International Ltd in 1997, covering a broad range of thematic areas including, but not limited to Medieval Greek (Byzantine) Studies, Military History, Modern Greek Language & Literature, Modern Greek History & Culture, Greek Diaspora, Balkan Studies, and Ottoman & Turkish Studies. Some of recent titles include _Late Ottoman Izmir-Smyrna -- The Dynamic of Inter-Communal Relations, 1826-1864_ by Feryal Tansu, _The Genocide of the Ottoman Greeks -- Studies on the State Sponsored Campaign of Extermination of the Christians of Asia Minor (1912-1922) and Its Aftermath: History, Law, Memory_, edited by Tessa Hofmann, Matthias Bjørnlund and Vasileios Meichanetsidis, and _The Ghosts of Plaka Beach -- A Story of Murder and Retribution in Wartime Greece_, by Stylianos Perrakis. https://www.caratzas.com/

He served as Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Hellenic American Union since 1999.

Aris was a remarkable and multifaceted individual. A man of great intellect and many talents with strong, but principled, conservative and Hellenocentric views, as well as endowed with a high level of political sophistication. A skilled analyst and assiduous reader, the quintessential bibliophile, he masterfully added a historical (and/or historiographical) context to political analysis and discourse. 

He is survived by his wife Christiane Lange and daughter Anastasia.  

He will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.
