Your Research Story and the FID Middle East

How Could We Help You?

First Special Area Collection then Specialised Information Service – we have been providing you with academic literature from the MENA region and other research-related services for decades.

We have lending numbers and user statistics. Howerver, we don’t know the stories behind them.

Tell us in short or long statements what influence our service has had on your work!

Become a FID Testimonial!

We would like to motivate colleagues, young scientists and students to use our service too thanks to your personal story.
