The Center for Documentation & Research

The Center for Documentation & Research in Abu Dhabi is among documentation institutions, acquainting the public with the history of the United Arab Emirates and the Arabian Peninsula. The Center has undertaken the responsibility of performing its fundamental obligations in researching and analyzing the sources of the nation’s history. The genuine concern and interest Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Late President of the UAE, expressed in the history of his country and his desire to provide the Emiratis with the tools to preserve their history and learn form the past experiences, was the basis for the establishment of the Center. The Center for Documentation & Research has thus acquired copies of documents from international archives pertaining specifically to the UAE and the Arabian Gulf. These Archives contain a wealth of historical materials that shed light on many aspects of life in the area dating back to the 16th century. This Center will remain a pioneering institution, embracing all efforts to expand ones knowledge of history and culture. Accordingly all residents of this modern, secure society, under the guidance of its able leadership, will have the opportunity to benefit from its rich resources. The Vision is to enlarge the shared understanding of the UAE’s identity by providing authoritative experiences that connect UAE nationals to their history and heritage. The Center for Documentation & Research promotes innovative and scientific research studies that provide the means to build a healthier, more equitable and more prosperous society. The Center for Documentation & Research aims to collect historical and rare documents, supervise their restoration, and use them for the benefit of the public. The Center preserves and indexes historical documents using all available scientific methods as these documents are considered as official vessels of information needed for scientific and historical research.
