UMAM Documentation and Research launched its long-awaited online archive initiative at Beit Beirut last week. UMAM's goal is to make its collection available for researchers or anyone interested in the region's history. Funded by a grant from the Swiss Embassy, the site contains information on about 8,000 books, 1,000 periodicals and 900 items in collections. There are also some e-copies of certain items, with more to come.It was then that UMAM started to properly catalog and back up the archive digitally where possible.Taking advantage of the launch, UMAM also relaunched "Memory at Work," a separate online database centered primarily on the history and recollections of Lebanon's several civil conflicts, with a more recent section on Syrian history and conflict.
