Middle Eastern Studies
The Middle Eastern Studies Collection supports research, teaching, and learning at all levels, and in particular for the programs of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies and the Middle Eastern Studies department. However, it also endeavors to support interdisciplinary undertakings making use of Middle Eastern content across the University and in the wider community.
Although the humanities and social sciences feature the majority of Middle Eastern content, materials from and about the region are present in all disciplines in the UTL collection. The Middle Eastern Studies collection prioritizes Arabic, Persian, and Turkish, but it also has holdings in Ottoman Turkish, Azerbaijani, Kurdish, and other languages of the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia. The collection’s geographic focus prioritizes Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Syria. Materials from and about North Africa, Sudan, and Turkey are also collected. Materials from and about Afghanistan and the former Soviet Union are acquired as needed.
All formats are supported, with a particular emphasis on emerging electronic resources.
