Looking to learn more about the Middle East?

Resources For The Community

The Middle East Studies Center (MESC) is your starting point for learning about the Middle East. 

For both students and scholars, our "Resources For Research" page features a variety of tools and research engines open to the wider community. For the OSU community, the library is the best place to find educational sources. The Middle East and Islamic Studies librarian, Magda El-Sherbini, has assembled an expansive library guide.

To educate on several critical topics, our "Topic Guides" page provide a reviewed reading list with full citations. 

To support educators looking to teach more about the Middle East, check out our "For Educators" tab. There, you can find online resources, information about teacher training, and recordings of past workshops.
