Middle East

From time to time graduate students request that books be ordered from Israel in Hebrew, and we do receive a very few journals in Hebrew, but we are unable to handle the verrnacular languages,  Arabic and Persian. The Law Library does collect treatises and a small number of journals in English and other Western European languages on the legal history, the conflicts, and the legal systems of the Middle Eastern countries. The Law Library also participates in the monographic portion (only in Western European languages) of the Library of Congress Cooperative Acquisitions program for the Middle East, but this does not deliver many titles.
