The U.S. Embassy is reorienting our public information services to better support our friends and readers in Bulgaria. Due to broad availability of materials via internet and popular search platforms, we are closing the Embassy’s Information Resource Center (IRC) office on May 21 and will no longer provide online research services. Instead, we are increasing our staffing resources to support people-to-people exchange programs and public outreach activities. This is the end result of a process that began a number of years ago. We thank all of our readers and patrons and we look forward to working with you in other capacities. If you are looking for information resources about the United States, our partners at the American Corners can provide some limited support: Sofia (email@example.com), Plovdiv (firstname.lastname@example.org), and Varna (email@example.com).
