Thank you, M. Bennett for this interview with Ms. Chaouni.
I stumbled upon your website while doing some research for one of my LIS classes. Your website is such a great resource.
I actually visited the library last October when I was in Fez. Ms. Chaouni did an excellent job in this restoration project with a beautiful architecture that captures represents the scholarly aspect and rich cultural heritage of the university.
