Resources at the UCLA Library and Beyond

This guide serves as a portal for resources relating to the ancient Near East and Egypt. Intended as a "one-stop shopping" site, this guide contains links to hundreds of e-resources, including reference sources like online dictionaries, encyclopedias, and bibliographies; databases and indexes; e-book and journal collections; and online archives, image repositories, and maps. Please note that while some electronic resources are freely available, others are subscription services provided by the UCLA Library, so remote access may be necessary when accessing from off-campus.

Selected Blogs and Other News Sources on Current Events in the Middle East and North Africa

For additional resources, please see the News section of the guide for Reference Sources in the Humanities and Social Sciences and the News Sources section of the guide for African Studies.
