Ms Alla Aslitdinova, Director of the Central Scientific Library of the Academy of Sciences of Republic of Tajikistan nominated as chairman of National Committee of the Memory of the World programme is established in early December 2002.
The formation of a national Memory of the World committee in every country where it is practicable is encouraged, and is a strategic goal. There is no rigid model. In some cases, a highly formalized and structured approach will be the right one: in others, the path might be more informal. The role and range of activities will vary according to resources or circumstances.
