Arabic Collections Online

About Arabic Collections Online

The AUB Libraries have joined the Arabic Collections Online Project, a publicly available digital library of public domain Arabic Language Content. Established with support from NYU Abu Dhabi, and currently supported by major grants from Arcadia, a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin, and Carnegie Corporation of New York, this mass digitization project aims to feature up to 23,000 volumes from the library collections of NYU and partner institutions. ACO aims to digitize, preserve, and provide free open access to a wide variety of Arabic language books in subjects such as literature, philosophy, law, religion, and more.
ACO contributing partners are New York University, Princeton, Cornell, Columbia, The American University in Cairo, American University of Beirut and United Arab Emirates National Archives. more
