VitalSource and Al Manhal Make Arabic Content Available Digitally

VitalSource partnered with Al Manhal “to expand the reach and delivery of Al Manhal’s unique content collection from over 450 Arabic language publishers.” Al Manhal’s collection is now deliverable through the VitalSource Bookshelf platform for higher education.

“This strategic alliance between our two companies will enable publishers and students of Arabic textbooks to finally make the same shift from print to electronic that is happening in scientific, technical and medical education across the world,” says Mohamed Al-Baghdadi, president and CEO of Al Manhal. “We are now able to empower students in Arabic humanities and social science programs with the same digital textbook platform that millions of students around the world are benefitting from. The result will be a dramatic impact on the quality of learning and education (and publishing) across the Middle East.”
