Middle East Centre (MEC) Library
NEW READER LIBRARY REGISTRATION:
WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY 2pm-4pm
The Library was originally established in 1958. It was first housed in a Victorian building until October 2015, when the Library moved to its permanent home in the prestigious Investcorp Building, which was designed by the renowned architect, Zaha Hadid. The Library boasts an architecturally rich and inspiring reading room with amazing ambience and space, all with state-of-the-art reader-centred library facilities. The newly created storage space with electronically operated bays allows for the future collection growth.
The MEC is a graduate library and has been since its establishment, committed to the provision of high standard services to the research community within the University and the scholars worldwide. The Library has unique and specialised holdings of publications on Humanities and Social Science subjects related to Turkey, Iran, Israel, and the Arab world, covering the period from the late 17th century to the present day.
The MEC Library collection complements the relevant collections held elsewhere at the University of Oxford, including the Oriental Institute and the central Bodleian Library.
Further details of the Library's activities can be found under each item of the main menu on the left.
