          Encyclopedia Palestinnica on Distinctive Display at the Library

On the 9th of April, Tuesday, the University Library had the fortune to receive an invaluable gift from Mr. Muhammad Abu Issa residing in Dubai.  Dr. Michael Sansour, Executive Vice President received the collection of 24 volumes from our generous donor.

Published this year, and covering the years 1516 to 1918, the Encyclopedia Palestinnica – with 898 plates of illustrations - tackles the history, culture, religions, flora and fauna in Palestine, among many other interesting subjects. Its author, Mr. Mohammad H. Ghosheh, is a historian who also writes about Jerusalem and its Islamic architecture.
