The AUB Libraries mourns Dr. Samah Idriss: Al-Adab editor

​​​​The AUB University Libraries (UL) were sad to hear about the passing away of Dr. Samah Idriss, a partner to the University Libraries, who trusted the UL to archive and avail, in open access, the full text of his Arabic magazine al-Adab, which was first published by his father, Dr. Souhail Idriss in 1953.

Dr. Idriss, an AUB graduate of 1986, strived to promote the Arabic culture and support the Arab intellectuals by publishing their articles in al-Adab magazine in a time of censorship in most other Arab countries.

The Libraries are proud to house the Print, as well as the Digital Archives of al-Adab magazine, accessible via the UL webpage:

Rest in Peace, Dr. Samah Idriss. ​
