BYLAWS: Proposed revision of section J


The committee on ByLaws finally finished revising Section J of MELA's Bylaws to allow a bit more flexibility in memberships. The full text of the revision are onlime  http://mela.us/index.html  Below is the plain text.

We will be voting in these revisions in person during our meeting.

 

J. Committee terms of service [revised]

 

1. The chairs of all committees, both Standing and those convened by the Executive Board, may serve for a maximum of three consecutive years, unless invited to extend service by the Executive Board.

2. Committee chairs may chair only one committee at a time to encourage participation, unless invited to chair a second committee by the Executive Board.

3. Members may serve on no more than two committees simultaneously.

4. Members may serve on a committee for no longer than two consecutive terms, a maximum of six years, unless a different term is stipulated elsewhere in the bylaws, or different candidates for election do not come forward.



​I would like to thank the committee members:

​Jonathan Rogers, Rachel Simon and Sharon Smith for their help.

Re: Archives, Kurdish Regions

Dear Melania,

Check with the main author, Prof. Richard Bevis who may still be on the faculty of Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, to see what happened to the original data base.  I remember beginning to digitize it (using the now archaic IBM punch cards!) in 1971-1972.  This remained with Jafet Library at the American University of Beirut.  

Please share with me what has become of this valuable database that contains more items than in Bevis’, Bibliotheca Cisorientalia published by G.K. Hall in Boston in 1973.


Thank you and best wishes,


Aseel Nasir Dyck,  M.A., M.L.S.

I need to see if I can get my hands on a copy of it for Zayed University. Will see what we can do.

Dear Afzal,

Check out:

Bibliotheca Cisorientalia: An Annotated Checklist of Early English Travel Books on the Near and Middle East Hardcover – 1973


by Richard W. Bevis  (Editor) with Jean Bridgewood, Hilda Hamayan, Hanan Mikhail, and Asil Nasir. (Boston: G.K. Hall, 1973).

I worked as a team member at the American University of Beirut (1969-1972) on this over-3000 item bibliography of early English-language travel books dating from the 16th century to the start of World War I (1914). It covered the lands and people of modern Turkey, Armenia, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, and Palestine. The annotations included history/geography, anthropology, religion, photography, illustrations, watercolors, etc.

Good luck!

KURDISTAN – late 18th C to Mid-19th
 
Does anyone know of ARCHIVES strong on colonialism, anthropology and photography with reference to Kurdistan regions please? ie  postcards of travellers, missionary, anthropologists and colonialists to the region during this period especially. There is a book by Susan Meiselas I know…Perhaps someone knows of a potential diary and archive materials by E.B. and Lynette Soane? Or of the Russian orientalists such as Basile Nikitine?

the Middle East Library Partnership Project with AFLI delegets (Roundtable, Saturday the 22nd at 11:30AM)

Dear all,

 

For those who will attend the conference, I would like to draw your attention to the roundtable of the Middle East Library Partnership Project, to be held at 11:30AM on Saturday the 22nd, right after the vendor’s showcase. Special guests from the Arab Federation for Libraries and Information (AFLI) are attending. We will have a presentation by Dr. Khaled Elhalaby the current AFLI president about AFLI and collaboration with Arab libraries. Then we will have an open discussion on partnership projects between the US and Arab libraries in general. I hope to see all of you, so we could hear from you, and you could hear from our special guests.

 

AFLI guests:

-          Dr. Khaled Elhalaby, the current AFLI president, and the Chief Librarian, Police Training Institute, Ministry of Interior, Doha, Qatar

-          Professor Jassim Mohammed Jirjees, PhD, MLIS Program Director, College of Computer Information Technology, UAE

-          Dr. Azzedine Bouderbane, Professor, Institute of Library Science, University of Constantine, Algeria

 

This is also a gentle reminder of the project’s survey. If you have taken the survey already, thank you, but if not, it will be great to give it a few minutes. Please find it here https://unc.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_brre2M4MD7xcded

 

My best regards, and see you in a few days.

 

Mohamed

The MELA dinner is a long-standing tradition that is very much enjoyed by the members in attendance. I would like to encourage everyone who has already registered for the meeting next week, if you have not yet made your dinner reservation through the PayPal link on the MELA website, to please do so without further delay!

 

The link can be found here: http://mela.us/annualmeetsmela.html --you will need to scroll down a little bit, the PayPal button is located *below* the dinner menu.

 

If you have already paid for the dinner, please pat yourself on the back & disregard this message. Some of our members have had a little trouble with the PayPal link & have communicated separately to William and me; you guys are also already accounted for.

 

Looking forward to seeing you soon in D.C.!
