36 participants from Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq completed the course, which was organised by Al-Furqan Islamic Heritage Foundation and hosted by the Waqfiyah Library (Al-Maktaba al-Waqfiyya).

In addition to the theoretical part, all Al-Furqan cataloguing courses include a strong practical component. The Aleppo training course was no exception and contained a series of workshops conducted by distinguished scholars.
