Unprecedented Strong Partnership with Arabic libraries

For over thirty years Naseej has been working with all types & sizes of libraries throughout the Middle East, hand in hand, to develop their services and their ability to serve their patrons and society, during which Arabic libraries were among the first civil institutions to adopt digital transformation. Today once again Arab libraries are the pioneers of adopting cloud technologies and managed software, which allows them to allocate their scientific and specialized human resources to better serve researchers and patrons, by freeing them from the constraints of traditional library services.
