Developing a law library in Afghanistan is the story I'll share during a TEDx Talk hosted by Cleveland State University on October 21. As a librarian working in international development, challenges building the library for a USAID project on Kabul University's campus were many - how to source a primary and secondary legal collection decimated by years of war, hiring library staff with no library training and navigating cultural differences and competing interests of secular and religious law schools. And this while managing a library where electricity was scare, dust storms were frequent and security was always an issue. Today the library doors are still open, serving the University and judicial training programs in Kabul.
