From the notes of that project:

The librarians at Birzeit University use the Library of Congress classification system even though it does not always appropriately or adequately express subjects in Palestinian history, geography, or culture—because there is no viable alternative. The librarians discussed the struggle to challenge LOC conventions when they petitioned to create a new call number, DS128.4, for the First Intifada, which would represent this period in history. In spite of their efforts, the Library of Congress in the U.S. started using a different call number than the one used at Birzeit. The background pattern is one of many MacPhee drew while on the delegation, inspired by the textures and ornamentation found across Palestine.
