The project will provide a complete program for digitizing online KHI archives, including a library of 15,000 special books as well as 3,000 culturally significant photos, 23,000 audio and video files. The awardee must include plans to preserve distinctive authentic cultural items and keep the materials from being lost, while at the same time making them available for the public through the development of a website for the institute. The duration of the project is expected to last 12 months, after which all materials will be digitized and available online for the public. The Governments of Iraq and the United States are committed through the U.S.-Iraq Strategic Framework Agreement to the establishment of affiliations between Iraqi and U.S. institutions to protect Iraqi Cultural Heritage.
