Resources at the UCLA Library and Beyond

This guide serves as a portal for resources for Middle Eastern, Armenian and Central Asian Studies. It contains links to a wide variety of e-resources, including reference sources like online encyclopedias and bibliographies; databases and indexes; e-book and journal collections; and news, cultural, and governmental sites. 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.

Featured Blog

AMIR, Access to Mideast and Islamic Resources, is a project of Chuck Jones, Librarian at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at NYU, and Peter Magierski, Middle East and Islamic Studies Librarian at Columbia, to assemble and distribute information on open access material relating to the Middle East and Islamic Studies.
