For one month (till 12th December 2014) SOAS Students and staff can try out the Classic Arabic Texts Online (CATO) published by Brill.

CATO  offers approx. 19,000 pages of classic Brill editions of Arabic texts in a full-text searchable format and accessible from one single point of entry.

The following titles are included in CATO-1:
•  Bibliotheca Geographorum Arabicorum (with indices and glossaries) edited by M.J. de Goeje and J.H. Kramers [Ibn al-Faqīh al-Hamadhānī’s Mukhtaṣar Kitāb al-Buldān]
• De Goeje’s edition of al-Balādhūrī’s Kitāb Futūḥ al-buldān
Origins of the Islamic State by Murgotten and Hitti, the English translation of al-Balādhūrī’s Kitāb Futūḥ al-buldān

The second part (CATO-2) that would include De Goeje’s edition of al-Ṭabarī’s Taʾrīkh al-rusul wa al-mulūk will be published in Spring 2015.
