We have some great news to share. It is testament to a good partnership between Truven Health Analytics (Micromedex) and TechKnowledge that we have won two awards at Truven’s annual Global Business Partner Meeting, this year’s summit being held in Chicago earlier this month (May 2015). We are proud to say that we achieved the highest success rates in new sales and in sales growth during 2014 and wish to continue this long and fruitful partnership into the years to come. Many thanks to Truven Health Analytics for the impressive awards ceremony and for these prestigious awards.
In January 2005, TechKnowledge introduced the Middle East to digital publishing, and the rest is history. In only ten years of service, TechKnowledge has established itself in six countries, with sixty employees, and has provided over one million students across 1,000 libraries with specialized electronic information and innovative research tools unlike any company in the region has done before.
ARAB LIBRARIES KEEPING ABREAST OF THE CONTINUAL INFORMATION ENVIRONMENT
TechKnowledge and sister company, Al-Manhal, are pleased to have been the official Silver Sponsors of the Second IFLA / AFLI Regional Conference , the result of a fruitful three-year partnership between the prestigious International Federation of Library Association (IFLA) and the Arab Federation of Library and Information (AFLI). As Silver Sponsors, we helped make it possible for Arab library and information professionals to attend the biggest library and information gathering in the sector, with over 4,000 attendees coming together this year at the world-renowned New Library of Alexandria in Egypt, a space devoted to recapturing the spirit of openness and scholarship of the original Bibliotheca Alexandrina.
The National Archives and Records Authority (NARA) signed a contract with Tech Knowledge Inc for subscription and purchase of Arab al Manhal database. As per the contract, the Authority will buy more than 11,000 electronic book titles (permanent ownership) and subscribe for one year in more than 120 publications, 2,500 dissertations available at Arab al Manhal data bases for non-definite number of users. The contract was signed by Dr Hamad bin Mohammed al Dhoyani, Chairman of NARA, and Mohammed al Baghdadi, CEO of Tech Knowledge. As per the contract terms, the Authority can use the books for scientific research purposes and making copies. Tech Knowledge will also provide technical support to the staff working at the Authority’s Reading Division, which will be launched soon, on how to use the database. The e-books are valuable addition to the library, as they will help researchers get accurate information. Date: 10 May 2015
