BA to Launch 20th Embassy of Knowledge at Ain Shams University
The BA Embassies of Knowledge department is launching the 20th Ain Shams University, with the participation of BA director Dr. Mostafa el Feki and Dr. Abdel Wahab Ezzat, President of Ain Shams University.
Dr. Mostafa el Feki has stated that the Embassies of Knowledge act as branches of the BA outside of Alexandria, and is represented as a smaller version of the library in each university in each governorate, from Aswan (Upper Egypt) to Marsa Matrouh (Lower Egypt). This service is of particular use to researchers, students and faculty members, as well as anyone interested in scientific and cultural affairs; the BA provides its embassies with international periodicals, scientific theses and research databases. Several lectures, seminars, conferences and workshops that have taken place at the BA have also been transferred and immediately broadcasted online through the BA website to all the embassies, thereby granting students and researchers free online access to the research services from within their governorates.
