“Arcadian Library Online sheds a timely light on the oft-forgotten transmission of scientific and medical knowledge from the Arab and Persian world to Europe, and does so magnificently … through the manuscripts and books within the library's collection, which are reproduced here in high-resolution detail, and in a readily searchable form in English and Arabic, including marginalia and expert commentaries.”
Nigel Fletcher-Jones PhD, Director, The American University in Cairo Press and Co-Chair of the 2018 PROSE Awards
“This collection is … user-friendly … and accessible … All facsimiles are of outstanding quality and visual appeal. Browsing through the Arcadian Library is an aesthetic pleasure. This new quarry will be welcomed by libraries of universities that host large Middle Eastern studies departments, not to mention Middle Eastern institutions that want to foster studies on their cultural heritage.”
“This is a beautiful and fascinating collection … for scholars and researchers with a deep interest in the influence of the Middle East on the West.”
"Overall, the Arcadian Library Online is a masterly achievement in content and design that adds value to any large or specialized research library. Its mission - to showcase the fundamental similarities and deep interconnections of the Middle Eastern and Western worlds - is precious in a century rife with conflict and misunderstanding between the peoples of these regions."
