Arabic and Middle Eastern Electronic Library
AMEEL is a Web-based portal and a digital collection of information for
the study of the Middle East, including its history, culture, development,
and contemporary face. Within this portal, Yale University Library offers
the OACIS serials database and integrates existing scholarly digital
content with newly digitized resources to make such materialS easier to
find and use efficiently and freely.
Currently, AMEEL holds approximately 250,000 pages of full text,
indexed and searchable in the language of publication including Arabic
and Western scripts. The full text in AMEEL has been extracted using
Optical Character Recognition software (OCR) rather than re-keying all
works. Our digitization team aimed for accuracy rates of higher than 90%
when converting modern Arabic text.
