Qatar National Library (QNL) has introduced new online databases that enrich its online resources and offer readers access to high-quality reference material.
One of the new databases comes from the ‘Royal Society of Chemistry’, which provides access to journals in multidisciplinary fields including biology, biophysics, energy and environment, engineering, materials, medicine and physics, in addition to its core subject of chemical science, QNL said Monday.
Elsewhere the ‘Emerald Insight eJournal Collection’ includes journals and books on a range of subject areas including accounting and finance, economics, management, marketing, education, information studies, engineering, sociology, and tourism and hospitality.
Another resource many users will find invaluable is ‘OECD iLibrary’, the online library of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
The OECD presents eBooks, chapters, articles and papers, as well as data and statistics going back to the 1960s covering over 80 countries. Its information will be useful for a wide range of users including staff and students at universities, researchers and business people.
A member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), QNL provides access to English language material as well as leading Arabic resources.
‘Al Manhal’ is a database that offers QNL users access to electronic content, and full-text searchable electronic databases of peer-reviewed and copyright protected Arabic publications.
Readers can navigate and access thousands of electronic publications from the Arab world’s leading universities, research centres and scientific societies.
QNL currently offers free online access to a vast collection of online resources including the latest bestsellers, classical works, concerts, top academic journals and documentaries. People living in Qatar with valid Qatari ID/Residence Permit are eligible for free library registration.
