"The Arabic Union Catalog is considered a cultural phenomenon and urgent need the Arab libraries, with their different types and formats, are looking forward to. Whereas, the AUC represents an union window to all Arab catalogs; as well as a knowledge and intellectual resource which includes all different types and formats of Arabic information resources. The AUC is considered a virtual training environment and subjective and practical tool which provides the opportunity to train on it as well"
