EBSCO Discovery Service Adds Al Manhal Metadata
EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) added Arabic content service provider Al Manhal’s ebooks, ejournals, e-reports, and e-dissertations databases to its collection.
Al Manhal’s databases contain peer-reviewed and copyright-protected publications from 205 Arabic publishers for use by academics, researchers, and library patrons. The databases feature full-text searching, contextual linking, highlighting and annotating, personal bookshelves, automatic citations, and MARC21 records.
Al Manhal concentrates on 10 subject areas: political science and international relations, business and economics, social sciences, law, language and literature, history, geography and biography, Islamic jurisprudence, Islam and other disciplines, and specialized Islamic and education sciences.
Al Manhal ejournals from Arabic universities, research institutes, and scientific societies cover topics in the humanities, social sciences, sciences, technology, and medicine.
The e-reports are daily aggregated regional news and weekly or monthly analyses of regional politics, economy, and security.
Since Al Manhal’s metadata is now searchable in EDS, its 68,157 publications will be indexed with dozens of other information resources that EDS offers.
