The following is a guest post by Robert Newlen, the Assistant Law Librarian for Collections, Outreach, and Services in the Law Library of Congress. Robert has previously blogged about Souvenirs from Moscow and Humboldt University Law Faculty in our Pic of the Week series.
The Uzbekistan government has recently invested significant resources in improving library services, which includes the construction of a new National Library of Uzbekistan. On a recent business trip to Tashkent (the capitol of Uzbekistan), I had the opportunity to visit the construction site of the new Library where I took this picture. The official opening is scheduled for November, 2011.
