Ever wondered how to find better materials faster for your MENA research projects? Why can your friends studying other areas of the world find great resources but you can't? Are there any special databases? How do you search for ISIS in the catalog, anyway? Does the library have any Arabic books? Is it better to search in Arabic/Persian/Hebrew or in English for MENA materials? This workshop with the GRC's MENA expert will cover tips and tricks on how to get the information you need, when you need it: Yalla/biya berim!
This workshop is part of the Researching with Specialized Collections Workshop Series for anyone looking to research using primary, rare, or archival source material.
