Records from the University of Exeter’s Middle East, Arab World Document Unit and Special Collections are now available on Copac.
The Middle East Collection is strong in most areas of Islamic studies, especially religion, philosophy, history, Arabic literature and all the social sciences. The AWDU covers all aspects of life (except literature and religion) in the Arabian countries plus Iran. The major strengths of the Special Collections include medieval and early modern history, nineteenth century studies and history of popular culture, and twentieth century literary and historical studies.
Exeter is the first library to be loaded as part of the Challenge fund – 11 others will be added as part of the project by Spring 2008. To see more information about the libraries to be loaded visit the forthcoming libraries page.
