Central library of Imam Reza holy shrine unveils integrated management system
According to Ali Zarrabi, manager of the Digital Library of Astan Quds Razavi, bringing the system into operation, all sections of the central library and affiliated centers along with 57 more libraries will be managed collectively. Also, all economic, cultural, and academic affiliations of Astan Quds Razavi will have access to library deposits through this newly unveiled system.

He went on to say: “Imam Reza holy shrine has to be simultaneously attentive to three areas in health domain. The first is physical health which is supplied by good nutrition and exercise. The second is spiritual health which is found when doing praying or having resort to Ahl al-Bayt (AS). Finally, the third is mental health which needs special attention to books and book-reading”.
