Release of the Khayrallah Center's Arab American Newspapers Project


The Khayrallah Center is delighted to announce the release of the beta version of its fully searchable database of Arab American newspapers. This online database provides full and open access to the general public and researchers to this rich source of the history of Arabs in the Americas, and beyond.

The Khayrallah Center has been digitizing Arabic language newspapers (rendering print and microfilm into image and PDF files) published in the US between 1894 and 1960. At this point our collection spans 17 newspapers, with nearly 300,000 pages. We continue to add to our collection daily from newspapers around the world, including Arabic language newspapers from the US, Argentina and Brazil. We expect to collect over one million pages over the next three years.
