NEW TRIAL – The University Libraries has a trial available for the Early Arabic Printed Books from the British Library from now until February 22. The online collection represents the digitization of one of the world’s most important Arabic collections, based on A.G. Ellis’ catalog from 1894. The full collection includes books on a variety of subjects, printed from the fifteenth to nineteenth century in Arabic script, as well as translations into European and Asian languages. Together, these works demonstrate Europe’s fascination with and assimilation of thinking from the Arabic-speaking world. This is the first major text-searchable online archive of pre-20th century Arabic printed books. Early Arabic Printed Books from the British Library is part of Gale’s Arabic program which aims to provide Arabic primary resources for teaching and research. Scholars can search on the full text of items in Arabic, English, French, German, Latin, Italian, Dutch and Spanish while also being able to discover content in Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Ottoman Turkish, Persian, Syriac and more.  To access the trial, visit Please send any feedback before or after the trial to Dr. Monica Blanchard at
