National License for Al Manhal eLibrary

From now on, access to about 12,000 e-books in the Al Manhal eLibrary has been made available for one year via a national license. The collections of the Arabic database provider Al Manhal cover a wide range of subjects, e. g. Social and Political Sciences, History, Geography, Law and Art.

New titles have been added to the Islamic Studies eBook Collection, which already had a national license since 2018. The titles of the eLibrary are predominantly in Arabic.

The eLibrary was licensed on the initiative of the Specialised Information Service Middle East, North Africa and Islamic Studies of the University and State Library of Saxony-Anhalt, which is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The licensing was realized in cooperation with the Centre of Competence for the Licensing of Electronic Resources (KfL) at the SUB Göttingen, also funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Access to the database is possible via the campus area or outside this area via VPN.
