EXPLORE THE COLLECTION
The collection at the Oman Library is a unique resource for scholarly information about the Middle East, defined by the Institute as those countries spanning from Morocco to Pakistan, including Turkey and the countries of Central Asia. Our biweekly Collection Spotlights feature specific works within our collections and describe potential applications for scholarly research. Perhaps the most unique and special aspect of our collection is that we offer materials that are not easily found elsewhere, including primary documents, hard-to-find periodicals, valuable travelogues and other geographical works, and a large number of rare books. Numerous items in our collection are one-of-a-kind pieces, with the Oman Library being the sole carrier of certain items. Learn more.
