Middle East Studies: Online Archives and Exhibits

A guide to Middle East news sources, web databases, digital libraries, and research tools available at the NU Libraries

Center for Research Libraries

The NU Libraries are a member of the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), an international group of research libraries that preserves and makes available to scholars critical primary source materials.  CRL acquires and preserves newspapers, journals, documents, and records from all over the world.  As a member, Northeastern provides you with CRL's vast collection. 

Most Middle East materials at CRL are not yet digitized, so they must be ordered in advance to allow for time to ship. Use ILLiad to request CRL materials on loan.
