About the research
The Qatar Unified Imaging Project will provide open access to the historical and cultural material of Qatar: to preserve the unique character of Qatar by providing easy access to digitized primary source materials in an agile centralized collection carefully managed and preserved for a persistent, authentic and continually-growing resource; to promote awareness and understanding of Qatari history, culture, and heritage; to provide an unprecedented opportunity for learning in Qatari schools and universities; to add to Qatar’s growing knowledge economy, create intellectual currency, and benefit Qataris and others interested in Qatar.
