Middle East Sources
A MELCOM Guide to Middle Eastern and Islamic Books and Materials in the United Kingdom and Irish Libraries
Middle East Sources provides an invaluable resource for the busy librarian, student or scholar with Middle Eastern interests. It aims to guide readers to the major collections of books and other materials on the subject in the UK and Ireland, as well as to some lesser known but nonetheless interesting collections in smaller libraries. Entries are fully up to date and include information on addresses (including telephone, fax and e-mail details), brief descriptions of collections held, along with references to relevant catalogue material and other directories.
The guide also highlights the extent of collections and gives help in accessing. The MELCOM Area Specialisation Scheme (MASS) designation of the collections is also included where relevant.
'The guide is interesting and valuable as a picture of Middle East library resources, and can be warmly recommended not merely to libraries but also to individual researchers as a most practical working tool.' - Jill Butterworth, British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies
