Bibliotheca Alexandrina and Scopus Sign Agreement

Oct 10, 2006

Scopus, an abstract and citation database of research information and web sources, and the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the New Library of Alexandria, have announced that the library will make Scopus available to their community. The original library was established in c. 290BC and stood, in some form, until the end of the fourth century AD when the last remnants were destroyed by Imperial Decree. The Bibliotheca Alexandrina was rebuilt in 2002. Scopus will provide central support to the Bibliotheca Alexandrina's research programs, including agriculture, chemistry, physics, astronomy, medical and social sciences.
