Sad news

Dear H-TURK;

We have just received word that noted Ottoman historian Halil Inalcik has passed away in Ankara.  More detailed obituaries will be forthcoming.

Status of archives and libraries under emergency rule?

I realize that people have bigger problems to worry about these days and that conditions are likely still quite fluid, but I wonder if anyone currently in Istanbul would be able to provide information regarding the status of research institutions like the BOA and the state libraries these days. Are these places still open?

Thank you and best wishes,

Jim Meyer
