Library Resources

The Middle Eastern Collection at the University of Chicago's Regenstein Library is one of the premier resources for Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies in the world. The collection has a long and auspicious history dating back to the establishment of the University itself. The collection contains materials in all the principal languages of the region including Turkish, Arabic, Persian, and Hebrew, as well as virtually all scholarship originating in the former Soviet Union, North America, and Europe. It is dedicated to supporting the studies of graduate students, undergraduates, faculty, and the international academic community, and in its breadth embraces all disciplines in the humanities and the social sciences.
