DLME: Digital Library of the Middle East
In response to violence and cultural destruction in the region, the Council on Library and Information Resources in association with other institutions is aiming to create a portal providing a searchable catalogue of online materials on the middle East. These will include historical and cultural artefacts.
There are currently over 6,00 thumbnail images online and thousands of references to books and manuscripts held in libraries (these do don’t have full text).
It is possible to search the catalogue by date, type of material and keyword.
