Fwd: Qatar Digital Library : New Resource for Research on History of the Gulf and the Middle East

fyi, for colleagues not subscribed to LIS-MIDDLE-EAST (LIS-MIDDLE-EAST-BJlGqfXgjbi3199FpKW2+w@public.gmane.orguk)

(with apologies for duplication)

Subject: Qatar Digital Library : New Resource for Research on History of the Gulf and the Middle East

Dear All,

Two days ago, I attended the launch of the Qatar Digital Library Online
portal at the British Library and thought I ought to disseminate the word
about this great new archival resource on the region.

The QDL has been developed as part of a 10-year Memorandum of Understanding
on Partnerships between the Qatar Foundation, the Qatar National Library
and The British Library.
A wide range of content from the British Library’s collections (more
specifically their colonial archives related to the Gulf Region) have been
digitized since 2012, reaching a total of 500,000 images that will be
available to browse and search by the end of 2014.


<http://blogs.soas.ac.uk/librariannews/files/2014/10/QDL_Engl_home_screenshot.jpg>

The Qatar Digital Library (QDL) is making a vast archive featuring the
cultural and  historical heritage of the Gulf and wider region freely
available online for the first time. It includes archives, maps,
manuscripts, sound recordings, photographs and much more, complete with
contextualised explanatory notes and links, in both English and Arabic.


<http://blogs.soas.ac.uk/librariannews/files/2014/10/QDL_Arabic_screenpshot.jpg>

This archive is bound to transform the study of Gulf history, improving
understanding of the Islamic world, Arabic cultural heritage and the modern
history of the Gulf.

 Find more info on the Qatar Digital Library go to
http://www.qdl.qa/en/about.

Try it for yourself (*Qatar Digital Library portal* <http://www.qdl.qa/en>)
and let your students and academics know  about this great (and free!) new
resource.
 <http://blogs.soas.ac.uk/librariannews/www.qdl.qa/en>

All the best,

Dominique

FW: another tricky query

If any of you can help Kristi, please respond to her directly.  Her contact info is below.

Thanks,

Judy

 

From: Western European Studies Section List [mailto:WESS-L-0lvw86wZMd/o8yKdmrBQ5uW1CriLhL8O@public.gmane.org] On Behalf Of Kristi Austin
Sent: Thursday, October 23, 2014 11:20 PM
To: WESS-L-0lvw86wZMd/o8yKdmrBQ5uW1CriLhL8O@public.gmane.org
Subject: another tricky query

 

... at least, it is for me.

A beloved philosophy professor has a Saudi student who remembers a book on his father's bookshelf back home which was about about Plato's Euthydemos (Euthydemus) and prophecy, a topic which is right up my professor's alley.  The book is in Arabic and the student recalls neither author nor title; thinks it was published in Egypt, maybe prior to the late 1990s.

I so don't have the tools nor expertise to help with this! In fact, in trying to limit a Google search to texts in Arabic, I inadvertently switched the whole Google interface to Arabic and then of course had a heck of a time fixing it back.

I did try WorldCat, Google books, scholar, and internet; and several philosophy, religion, history, and literature databases, looking for anything that might mention such a work; looked through some bibliographies including those from dissertations and theses.

Anybody know what the title and author of this work might be?

Thanks very much!

[MELANET-L] Help with [CD-ROM] Jamʻ jawāmiʻ al-aḥādīth wa-al-asānīd wa-maknaz al-ṣaḥāḥ wa-al-sunan wa-al-masānīd

Hi—

Installing the CD-ROM that comes with this title reveals an unusual challenge! You can’t get the keyboard to type Arabic letters in the search boxes-- getting the typed Arabic letters to enter and be visible. Those who have tried the product successfully can you suggest a solution, please.

 

Thanks,
