The Penn Library’s Middle East Collection Page provides links to the extensive Africana resources at Penn. Trico students may use the Penn Library, but may not check out books or use online resources.
Bryn Mawr has an extensive collection of printed travel accounts, memoirs, and other works on the Middle East from the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries. Overviews of our holdings and guides to particular collections can be found on the Special Collections web site.
The book collections are included in Tripod. It is possible to limit your search to just the Special Collections holdings by choosing “Bryn Mawr Special Collections” from the Tripod Classic menu box that normally reads “View Entire Collection.”
Hours: 9:00 am – 4:30 pm Monday – Friday, open until 8:00 pm on Wednesdays. An appointment is a good idea for your initial visit to talk about resources for your project.
