* Arabic: Guide to Research

This subject guide provides reliable resources pertaining to the study of the Arabic language, prose and poetry.

Welcome!

Hello! I'm Eileen Daly-Boas, and I'm here to help you discover the best (and most efficient) ways to do research. I'm happy to meet with you in person, or via email, chat or telephone. I've provided step-by-step instructions for your research projects, and links to other helpful UR sites in the tabs at the top of the page

Articles about Arabic or Islam

First step: Dictionaries, Grammar and Writing

Need help with the language? Begin by consulting dictionaries and books on grammar below.  If you're getting started on your topic, begin by checking out these encyclopedia and bibliography databases in the next section. They'll provide you with a basic background for your topic, and a list of important papers published on your topic.  This is a great time-saver.

In the left-hand column, you'll find links to databases that have material on Arabic language and cultures, in addition to resources for Islam.

When you have a list of books or articles to search for, you can search from our Articles & Books tab on our homepage: http://www.library.rochester.edu.
