Illustrated Guide to the Near East Collections On-Line

The Near East Section retains custody of materials in over 40 languages of the area known as the Near East, including the countries and peoples of the Caucasus and Central Asia. The main linguistic groupings- Arabic, Armenian, Central Asian, Georgian, Persian, and Turkish and Turkic Armenian, Georgian–form the basis of a particularly potent and vital research center on all things Middle Eastern. Its specialists are available for briefings, for rapid and long-term reference and research assistance, and for detailed bibliographic and subject analyses.
