CMES Libraries


Books & Videos 

The CMES library has around 2,000 books, journals, films, and CDs on the Middle East in many different languages. Most of these volumes are unique to our library on campus. Most items are available for checkout at the front desk. (During the pandemic, you will be able to check out reference books such as language dictionaries.) The library is open to UA faculty, students, staff, and community members.
