When was the State Library named after Alisher Navoi?

In 1948, the library was named after the great Uzbek poet and thinker Alisher Navoi, and a new three-story building with reading rooms for 350 people was opened.

In the 1970s, new departments were created: scientific research, scientific information on culture and art, depository storage, control and dispatch service, and a youth department. 

You can learn more about the topic in the book-album "The Manuscript and Book Heritage of the National Library of Uzbekistan named after Alisher Navoi" (Volume XLI) in the series "The Cultural Legacy of Uzbekistan". 

The main sponsor of the project is the oilfield services company Eriell-Group.
