A Visit to the Cambodian Development Research Institute (CDRI)

A week ago I had the chance to visit the library at CDRI, one of the leading centers of research in Cambodia. The space, which is tucked into a complex in northern Phnom Penh, was a delight to visit. I work with the materials published by CDRI directly via my internship, but had never known about the librarians who worked there. Here’s the website, though I must admit the site’s currently down due to a Muslim hacker group.

With Maden (the female assistant) and Hin (the librarian, who managed to survive the Khmer Rouge and recover the National Library before moving to work at CDRI):
