New York University Libraries has announced the creation of Arabic Collections Online (ACO), a major project to create a publicly available, digital library of public-domain Arabic language content drawn from rich Arabic collections of prominent libraries such as the American University of Beirut, Columbia University, Cornell University,New York University and Princeton University.

So far more than 200 tiltes are available full-text. This mass digitization project aims to expose up to 15,000 volumes from NYU and partner institutions over a period of five years. NYU and the partner institutions are contributing all types of material—literature, business, science, and more—from their Arabic language collections.

The website hosting this content is now accessible to the public worldwide, check it out at: http://dlib.nyu.edu/aco/ and add it to your bookmarks!
