This page will eventually evolve into an electronic public library for
public-domain books written in Arabic in all disciplines or about Arab-related
topics in any language.
Here is the plan;
|We will collect electronic versions of books via this page, news-groups
and other Internet resources.
|The books will be reformatted to be readable across many platforms.
Current plan is to convert them to PDF format and to the two e-book formats.
|When we have a reasonably large number they will be posted here for all to
|This is a long-term project. We are talking years and not weeks.
|The sooner we get books emailed to us the sooner we can start posting them
How you can help;
|If you have any book in Arabic or about Arabs in an electronic format
please email it to us at
|By emailing a book you confirm that the book is either in the public
domain or that you own the copyright and give us permission to post it here.
|Please indicate if you want an acknowledgment mentioning your name to be
included with the book when it is posted.
|You can also send us your recommended list of books you think are worthy
of inclusion. We will then try to get these.
- We have no intention to act as sensors. Our role is to establish a public
library and not to act as 'thought police'. We will post what is submitted.
- However, we cannot post books providing instructions about how to commit
criminal activities. For example, we will not post a book entitled "How To
Kill Your Neighbour And Eat His Children Without Being Caught".
- We will post books.
- We will only post articles, email messages, essays and
the like if we feel they are thought provoking or address important issues.
