Ara­bic Col­lec­tions Online (ACO) is a pub­licly avail­able dig­i­tal library of pub­lic domain Ara­bic lan­guage con­tent. ACO cur­rent­ly pro­vides dig­i­tal access to 11,446 vol­umes across 6,787 sub­jects drawn from rich Ara­bic col­lec­tions of dis­tin­guished research libraries.

ACO aims to dig­i­tize, pre­serve, and pro­vide free open access to a wide vari­ety of Ara­bic lan­guage books in sub­jects such as lit­er­a­ture, phi­los­o­phy, law, reli­gion, and more. Impor­tant Ara­bic lan­guage con­tent is not wide­ly avail­able on the web, and ACO aims to ensure glob­al access to a rich Ara­bic library col­lec­tion. Many old­er Ara­bic books are out-of-print, in frag­ile con­di­tion, and are oth­er­wise rare mate­ri­als that are in dan­ger of being lost. ACO will ensure that this con­tent will be saved dig­i­tal­ly for future gen­er­a­tions.

ACO con­tribut­ing part­ners are New York Uni­ver­si­ty, Prince­ton, Cor­nell, Colum­bia, Amer­i­can Uni­ver­si­ty in Cairo, Amer­i­can Uni­ver­si­ty of Beirut and Unit­ed Arab Emi­rates Nation­al Archives.
