NYU Libraries Announces Project to Create Arabic Collections Online

September 17, 2013

NYU Libraries has announced the creation of Arabic Collections Online, a project that will offer a digital library of public-domain Arabic language content.

Funded by NYU Abu Dhabi, this mass digitization effort aims to produce up to 15,000 volumes per year from NYU and partner institutions for five years.

“We are delighted that we and NYU Abu Dhabi can make this major contribution to scholarship and bring great library collections of Arabic materials to a wide audience,” says Dean of Libraries Carol A. Mandel.

NYU and the partner institutions will contribute material ranging from literature to business to science and more from their Arabic language collections. NYU Libraries Digital Library Technology Services will develop and manage the online interface, creating a web portal accessible to the public around the world.

“Arabic Collections Online brings the rich content of Arabic publications held in American libraries not only to universities worldwide, but to secondary schools and readers throughout the Arabic speaking world,” notes Ginny Danielson, director of the NYUAD library. “It truly enhances reading and research opportunities for Arabic speakers globally.”
