From the Ottoman Empire to the Arab Spring, the countries of the Middle East and North Africa have stood at the crossroads of history. The Middle Eastern and North African Newspapers collection includes publications from across this dynamic region, providing unique insights into the history of individual countries, as well as broad viewpoints on key historic events from the late nineteenth century through the present.
Researchers will find a wealth of unique content from the Middle East and North Africa, much of which has never been digitized or available as open access material. Content in the Middle Eastern and North African Newspapers collection is predominantly in Arabic, but also includes key titles in English and French. The collection comprises mostly out-of-copyright, orphaned content. CRL members and subscribing institutions also receive access to five in-copyright titles from the region: al-Akhbār (الاخبار, Lebanon, 2006–2019), al-Dustūr (الدستور, Jordan, 1967–2000), al-Jumhūrīyah (الجمهورية, Egypt, 1962–1986), al-Riyāḍ (الرياض, Saudi Arabia, 1972–1996), and Filasṭīn (فلسطين, Israel/Palestine, 1956–1967).
