About the LALORC project

In 2005 the American Institute for Yemeni Studies (AIYS), acting on behalf of partner American overseas research centers (AORCs) and their umbrella organization, the Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC), was awarded a four-year matching grant by the U.S. Department of Education's Technological Innovation and Cooperation for Foreign Information Access" (TICFIA) program to identify archival and library collections in the countries where AORCs are established, and to partner with them and with the AORCs existing local institutional and academic connections in order to undertake focused field efforts provide access to this rich vein of previously inaccessible material.

On this site you will find information concerning the purpose of the project, known as the Local Archives and Libraries project of the American Overseas Centers (LALORC), as well as about its work plan, and progress. As digital materials created by the project become ready for public access, they will become part of the databases and text collections maintained by the Digital Library for International Research (DLIR), a program of the Council of American Overseas Research Centers.
