Bibliotheca Alexandrina is Uploading Bodies of Work on YouTube

Following their earlier move to put up over 200,000 books online, the historic library is now adding a ton of new content to their YouTube channel, including documentaries, concerts, and conferences.

What is perhaps one of the oldest pillars of Egyptian academic and cultural heritage, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, has launched a new way for Egyptians to access its events. Through their YouTube channel, the library will release their creative cultural and artistic works on the internet in an effort to continue communication with its audience, in light of the exceptional global circumstances at hand. 

Not long ago, the library uploaded 200,000 books online, and now the library is following that up by uploading their non-literary works on YouTube to create a more comprehensive experience. Documentaries, concerts, and conferences are a sample of the wide breadth of works that will be available on their channel. 

Some documentaries you have to look forward to delve into the lives of iconic figures, including the likes of late UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros Ghali, artist Farouk Hosni, and former president Gamal Abdel Nasser, among others.
