The AUB University Libraries are launching an online exhibit entitled “The Emergence of Greater Lebanon".
The primary sources displayed in this online exhibition were retrieved from a collection donated by Hikmat Kassir to the University Libraries.
Originally planned as a physical exhibition to support a conference on Greater Lebanon at AUB, it was decided to showcase some of the content virtually due to the COVID-19 measures, and the temporary closure of the Library.
The online exhibition is viewable on-campus only for AUB community members: http://tiny.cc/emergenceofgreaterlebanon
The showcased documents are mostly related to the Peace Conference. Also, in an attempt to focus on the few days before and after the declaration, Claims for Territorial Attachment and Independence and other documents from the Arab World towards Tutorship are showcased, along with the Reactions after the Declaration of Greater Lebanon.
Also, in this exhibition are some documents related to the Beirut-Damascus Railway Company, during that same period, and a movie that also illustrates the period.
For more information about the exhibit, please contact the Collection Development Department via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or via phone on extensions 2624/2628.
