The first Asia Reading Room Display for the fall semester 2018, “UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Asia” kicked off on Sept. 1 st . Asia librarians have selected books featuring World Heritage sites in each region. To be listed as a World Heritage site, the site must be of outstanding, universal value and meet at least one of ten selection criteria listed at https://whc.unesco.org/en/criteria/

An important consideration for UNESCO is that countries will provide for “the protection, management, authenticity and integrity of properties.”
