Middle Eastern / South Asian Studies

Why this guide?

The basic principle underlying the organization of any library is to describe the documents it contains so that they may be located.  All libraries create sets of records which describe the documents in their collections.  Catalogs are sets of records to documents that share a location.  Indexes are sets of records to documents that share some other attribute (generally subject matter).  The Middle Eastern / South Asian Studies Program (ME/SA) is an interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary program that brings together students and faculty from many campus departments.   The following is a list of standard indexing and abstracting resources that cover many of the disciplines relevant to ME/SA.
