a database dedicated to the written, religious and cultural heritage of the Middle East.

AlKindi aims to become a scientific research tool on medieval religious and cultural heritage of the Middle East.


To do this, AlKindi data is structured and entered according to the recommendations of the new model received by the international library community (IFLA-LRM and RDA) and implemented by the Diamond-ILS application.

AlKindi is no longer just a simple directory of publications, but is enriched, daily, by new editorial data concerning the works of this heritage.

The works, intellectual creations, are placed at the center of a documentary system that includes not only their scientific editions but also their manuscripts, upstream, and their translations, downstream.

By systematically placing works at the center of research, AlKindi aims to describe the genealogy or literary descent of a medieval work through the links that the works foster between them.
