A considerable expansion of Al Manhal’s global reach, this new step will put its content onto the digital shelves of nearly all libraries worldwide. The announcement represents a major extension of the companies’ partnership and will increase EBSCO’s offering while greatly expanding global discovery of Al Manhal content.

EBSCO will distribute Al Manhal’s 12 eBook Collections: Business & Economics, Educational Sciences, Heritage & Reference, History, Biography & Geography, Islamic Jurisprudence, Islam & Other Disciplines, Specialized Islamic Sciences, Language & Literature, Law, Political Science & International Relations, School (6-12), and Social Sciences.

EBSCO Vice President of Product Management, Ken Breen, says working with Al Manhal is part of EBSCO’s commitment to provide a diversified collection of e-books and more choice to librarians and their patrons. “Providing content that our libraries need and want is a top priority for EBSCO. Our partnership with Al Manhal will help academic, corporate and government librarians seeking leading Arabic titles to add them to their collection in a cost-effective way since there are no markups or fees of any kind on EBSCO eBooks.”

By expanding their partnership, Al Manhal and EBSCO will maximize value to their library customers worldwide. The thousands of libraries that use EBSCO Discovery Service™ will be able to both explore the entire Al Manhal eLibrary and access the complete eBook database with a single click.

“Increasing worldwide discovery and usage of Al Manhal content is a key step in achieving our company vision,” said Mohamad Al Baghdadi, Al Manhal CEO. “With powerful indexing tools and the global reach of EBSCO's distribution network, this strategic partnership will help us distribute our eBooks to academic libraries all around the world.”

Expanding its partnership with EBSCO is yet another symbol of Al Manhal’s continued commitment to putting its content in the hands of researchers worldwide. With flexible pricing models, available free trials, subscriptions and perpetual access methods, the company is dedicated to connecting academia with the rich academic resources of the Arab world, and this agreement promises to do that and more.

Library patrons can find e-books while using EBSCO’s comprehensive and powerful discovery experience and are able to download e-books to mobile devices, including the Kindle Fire.
