What is your opinion about AL-Fahras services?


On July 1, 2017, the Arab Catalog made a noteworthy announcement regarding an initiative in authority control. This initiative is a significant step towards establishing an Arab-level system of authority files. Furthermore, this announcement marks the initiation of the first phase of constructing their authority files.


This is the first step in building an electronic authority file reflecting Arab and Islamic culture and environment. It keeps up with the latest developments, updates, and regulations in authority control. References, relationships, and links to international authority files are the objectives of providing comprehensive authority records.

Arabic names, especially ancient ones, will be given special attention in the Arabic catalog. Interested individuals and specialists will also be invited to participate and provide their opinions and input on subject headings. The Arabic catalog will make these announcements through its dedicated communication channels.
