Bloomsbury’s Arcadian Library Online (ALO) is a valuable contribution to studies on the Middle East and on the cultural, scientific, and diplomatic relations between the Islamic and Western worlds. Slated for rapid expansion over the coming years, the Arcadian Library Online currently consists of 200 classic books dating from the ninth through the twentieth centuries. It contains chiefly printed books with a handful of manuscripts and incunables, most in Latin or Arabic but many in English, French, or other European languages. Digitized by special arrangement with the exclusive private Arcadian Library in London, these books are made available as high-resolution, beautifully rendered images. The platform offers robust searchability and a user-friendly image viewer, alongside a visually appealing interface, intuitive navigation, and mobile responsive site design. The platform enables users to toggle seamlessly between English and Arabic keyboards and site versions without loss of functionality. Prospective customers for the Arcadian Library Online include large or specialized research libraries serving researchers in the history of science and medicine, Middle Eastern or Islamic studies, and related disciplines.
