After launching in 1997, AskZad has consistently maintained its place among the Arabic digital community by offering a vast amount of archived journals, articles, newspapers, books, and other forms of media within the Middle East.

A vast Arabic library for libraries around the world:

Designed with the needs of researchers in mind, AskZad contains scans of original articles going as far back as 1823. AskZad's diverse collection includes published content from the Middle East in Arabic as well as Arabic content worldwide.  The majority of AskZad's content is in Arabic but content in English, French and German is also available.
