The director of al-Hussein bin Talal Library, Prof. Omar al-Ghoul, reported that two library employees of Yarmouk University were able to correct a mistake in the restrictions of the Library of Congress, which was overlooked for many years. He explained that the library classification staff imports many book recordings from the Library of Congress. While working on the classification of Adam Screams and Hawa Cries, a novel by the Egyptian writer Sabri Moussa, Ms. Haifa Sharaqah compared the data of the book with the data of the same book contained in the recording of the Library of Congress. Then she found that the author's name is indexed in the recording as Musa Sabri. Examining the accuracy of that, Ms. Sharaqah, with the help of her colleague Mr. Khaldoun Al-Ruwaisi, realized that Sabri Moussa and Musa Sabri are two Egyptian authors whose names are mistakenly substituted by the Egyptian press as well as the Congress Library. Eventually, al-Ruwaisi reported the case to the Library of Congress via e-mail, alerting them to correct the mistake, which causes the head of production services at the Library of Congress to email the Library of al-Hussein bin Talal thanking them for their contribution to correcting such a mistake.
