A new digital library: Zendy launches in Saudi Arabia

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 7th February, 2021: Zendy, the first subscription-based library for scholarly literature in MENA, has launched in Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi 2030 vision aims to move towards a culture of research, innovation and entrepreneurship. Zendy plans to support this vision by providing researchers, students, and other knowledge enthusiasts access to thousands of articles, e-books and scholarly resources. 

Zendy’s mission is to break down barriers to scholarly discovery by providing individuals world-wide affordable access to the world’s latest research and literature. Traditionally academic literature is hidden behind expensive paywalls or restricted to those who are affiliated with a larger organisation.  

Kamran R. Kardan, Founder and CEO of Knowledge E, says, “We are extremely excited to launch Zendy in Saudi Arabia, to increase the visibility of research in the Kingdom and promote education for all. Saudi Arabia is striving towards becoming a knowledge-based economy and, by expanding Zendy’s presence to the country, we aim to drive this shift forward.” 

Zendy first launched in Jordan in late 2019, and the online library has since accumulated thousands of users across North Africa and the Middle East. It hosts over 120,000 publications including more than 30,000 journals and 30,000 e-books. Zendy also allows users to save searches, export citations and navigate easily according to material type, subject, publication title, language and more. 

To celebrate Zendy’s launch, all Saudi Arabia users will receive a 50% discount on the yearly plan by using the discount code SAUDILAUNCH50 when subscribing here.
