SHARJAH: His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, has affirmed that research centres like Dr Sultan Al Qasimi Centre of Gulf Studies and King Abdulaziz Centre in Saudi Arabia are aimed at helping researchers access information sources easily and communicate with other research centres, enabling them to make the best methodological researches.

Sheikh Sultan said this while attending the inauguration ceremony of the 6th GCC-Maghreb Conference at Dr Sultan Al Qasimi Centre of Gulf Studies on Wednesday.

The conference is held in cooperation with King Abdulaziz Centre on Feb.12 - 13 with the participation of a group of researchers and university professors concerned with scientific research.

Research centres should give grants to researchers to enable them to conduct their work without worrying about how to make a living, and should also provide guidance for research to be the most useful, Sheikh Sultan said. 

Sheikh Sultan added that he is proud of the great role played by King Abdulaziz Centre in serving researchers inside and outside of Saudi Arabia, noting that all scientific research centres should deal with researchers in the same way and that Dr Sultan Al Qasimi Centre of Gulf Studies is open for all.

The conference focuses on the methods of communication among research centres and their role in strengthening GCC-Maghreb cooperation. It also focuses on the suggested methods of cooperation among research centres and the role of academicians, researchers and scientists in ensuring continuous communication.

ALA praise for sultan

A number of American librarians have praised the great efforts of His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, in supporting public libraries in the Arab world and enriching them with valuable books and manuscripts.

Speakers especially praised the Sharjah Ruler’s gesture in reopening the Egyptian Scientific Institute in October 2012, and providing it with over 4,000 original manuscripts, books, and rare encyclopaedias from his private collection. This affirmed that culture is the public property of human kind. This step also represents great value for researchers, academics, and readers from all over the world.

This praise followed the successful participation of Sharjah International Book Fair in the Annual Conference and Exhibition of the American Library Association (ALA), which took place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The event attracted hundreds of librarians from public and private libraries, as well as commercial libraries, publishers, and authors from the United States of America and all over the world.
