Minor in Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies (MEIS) Research Guide: Home

A research resource guide for students minoring in Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies (MEIS) on the Rutgers-Newark campus.

Welcome to Graphic Design Senior Studio

Learning Resources

The Ottoman History Podcast - Easy to understand Islamic history by scholars in the field. Recommended by Wendell Marsh, Associate Professor of African American and African Studies at Rutgers-Newark.

Dear Students:

I hope the material in this guide helps you with your coursework in Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies (MEIS).  The guide contains information about research resources related to courses for the MEIS minor. Some pages include basic information about using the Rutgers University Libraries as well as suggested sources and examples of search terms to start you on your journey.

When you are performing research from off campus, you will need to connect to the library's resources using your netID and password. There is a LibGuide that will help you get started using Rutgers Library Resources.

This guide is a constant work in progress. I welcome your suggestions about additional resources and organizing the pages here to make your research more effective. Please contact me any time with questions about research, or you can call the Dana Library Reference Desk during their listed hours of operation.


Best regards,

Krista White (, 973-353-5913)
