From January 30 to February 28, 2017, the McGill Library is trialing E-Marefah, an integrated database of Islamic studies, Arabic literature & Middle Eastern Studies.
E-Marefah provides acces to full text and comprehensive metadata of over 700,000 journals, research papers, theses and dissertations, conference papers, statistical reports, and e-books in all disciplines, including most recently published titles.
E-Marefah includes five databases for each specialty:

All databases can be searched simultaneously or separately, either in Arabic or in English, through a single search box. Search results display in a table including extensive metadata and a link to the PDF document when full-text is available:
