Great Britain, London, 15 May / Trend corr. G.Ahmadova / The Oxford-Azerbaijan Society (Oxaz) has started donating the books and other material in English language to the Oxford libraries. Eldar Rustamov, Chairman of Azerbaijani students Society in Oxford, stated that many books donated to the library were devoted to the National Leader Heydar Aliyev.
