The Center for Research Libraries announced in April 2015 that they had microfilmed and/or digitized a collection of materials originally published in Afghanistan from 1924 through 2010. Emory is a member of CRL and these materials can be requested via Inter-Library Loan.
These materials cover the last years of the monarchy's rule in Afghanistan, civil war, foreign invasion, and the rule of the Taliban. The collection of materials includes general newspapers, cultural periodicals, and the publications of organizations as diverse as the Lawyers Association, trade unions, the Ministry of Defense, and the Ministry of Information and Culture. The titles were published in a variety of cities on Afghanistan and are written Pushto, Persian, and Dari.
All of the materials have been microfilmed. A subset of the materials funded by the Middle East Materials Project (MEMP) was also digitized.
