Welcome to the Arabic Resources Guide. This guide provides more specialized information on doing research in Arabic or on topics relating to the Arab world. Many of the "reference" works in Arabic are available only in print. Their organization may not be self-evident. The guides included here will hopefully be of help in navigating such problems.
Dictionaries - the dictionaries that are most accurate and when to use them.
Arabic Periodicals - Arabic periodicals at the University of Washington
Arab Authors - A project never completed that lists modern Arab authors and their works held at the University of Washington
Arabic e-books and serials - websites that provide full text Arabic e-books and serials. The sites tend to be a bit unstable.
Topics - Links to useful information on random topics. Generally there aren't enough websites on a given to topic to create whole page.
Indexes to Arabic Resources - On the rare occasion when there is an index to Arabic language materials, it is worth recording. However, there are still very few.
