Our History

Al Manhal, acquired by Techknowledge General Trading LLC, a leading provider of edutech solutions for academic, government and corporate libraries in September 2018, is the world’s first Arabic full-text database provider and the result of 20 years electronic publishing experience of Mohamad Al-Baghdadi. He co-founded and managed international sales for ebrary, the leading ebook technology company.

Through his global and regional electronic publishing experience, he saw a critical need for research and professional content from the Arab world to be accessible throughout the region and the world. He recognized that while there is a growing emphasis on education and research in the region, there is a lack of cost-effective and reliable method for publishing and distributing the output of that research. In turn research without the corresponding publishing and distribution has minimal impact, and is an absolute waste of the region’s intellectual assets, research activities and budgets.
