Recently, the Library was asked to provide access to Arabic-language newspapers. The good news is that it already does! More than 30 Arabic-language newspapers are available in electronic format through the Library’s subscription to the PressDisplay database, which provides access to recent issues of newspapers across the world. To access the database go to the Library homepage and select the “Databases A-Z “ link that appears in the box with the “Articles” tab. The PressDisplay homepage may be customized for an Arabic user interface. Available newspapers may be identified by clicking on the arrow to the right of the “Select Title” button at the top right of the main screen and then choosing the “By Language” option.
To identify other resources about Arabic language and culture available through the Library do a subject search in UNISTAR, the online catalog, on subject headings such as “Arabic language,.” “Arabic fiction,” and “Arabic history.”
