Catalogs

The catalogs allows Internet user to access all the bibliographical information on the existing collections.

This catalog offers access to two databanks:

Ibn Rushd: The library's interest in the Maghreb area resulted in a systematic search for documents related to the Maghreb, considered in its historical and cultural environment (the Maghreb in its different components, Al-Andalus, Muslim experience in west Europe, Islam in West Africa). These documents are subject to systematic and deep document processing. Cataloguing and indexing (content description) are applied not only to books (monographs) but also to articles published in different periodicals and to authors' contributions published in collective works.

The obtained data are stored in Ibn Rushd databank, established in 1989. Currently, it comprises about 160,000 bibliographical records and is updated on a daily basis. Moreover, an average of 9,000 bibliographical items is annually added to this number.  Today, Ibn Rushd comes to be considered among the best tools of bibliographical information relating to Maghreb and Andalusian studies.

This databank enables an advanced search by keywords, which make it easy for a fruitful thematic search on the subject of the Maghreb or any of its components.

Mawsu’a: gathers the entirety of the records contained in all the collections in the library, about 400 000 records, regardless of the records contained in the archives and postal card collection. In addition to studies on Maghreb, Islam and the Arab World, the user may have valuable bibliographic information gathering a selection of the best theoretical works in the fields of social and human sciences.
