Library's Iraq collection gives firms head start

ICE News

THE ICE library has compiled a reading list of more than 400 articles, papers and books written on Iraqi infrastructure for members looking for an inside track on reconstruction work.

The reading list is based on readily identifiable material held on Iraq in the ICE library, along with material found on bibliographic databases.

It includes papers on the construction of much of Iraq's civil infrastructure. A great deal of this was installed by British firms in the 1960s and 1970s. Details on ground conditions and seismic activity are also available.

The library has additional information on the meteorology of the general area and the hydrology of major rivers from standard reference works.

It also holds extensive literature on topics such as hot weather concreting, which is contained in the reading list.

The list does not include references to older journals as these do not have cumulative indexes, which makes searching very time consuming.

If information is sought on a specific work which is not referenced on the reading list, searchers are advised to speak to one of the library staff on (020) 7665 2251 or email library@ice. org. uk providing as much information as you have.
