The Middle East North Africa
Internet Resource Guide


This guide was created to serve the needs of scholars, students, and interested individuals in finding and using internet resources dealing with the Middle East. In this document the Middle East is defined as broadly as possible. It includes: The region is defined in this way because of my belief that the interaction between cultures in this broadly defined region is partially responsible for the diffusion of many social, political, cultural and linguistic traits. Many disagree with the inclusion of one state or another but I will stand by my reading of history.

The Workshop on Middle East Internet Resources for K-12 Teachers is available. This material is a small collection of resources that are useful for K-12 teachers and should be used in conjunction with the Middle East North Africa Internet Resource Guide. If the material is used in training workshops please send me a copy of any materials that you use in the workshop so that I can expand this material as well..

This collection of resources is accurate to the best of my knowledge. Please direct any questions, comments, or additions to my attention. When responding please provide detailed information on the resource in question and its address. The more information that is provided the better this service will be. The sheer volume of resources available makes it impossible for me to check each of these services regularly. With your help the service will continue to be a useful tool. When resonding please use the subject MENA. I would like to create a form to serve as the method by which corrections and additions are processed but do not have access to CGI scripting on this server..
