The nationally ranked MDC Library contains an extensive collection of journals, articles, archival materials (including the British Archive's Archive Editions), economic source and statistical data, and other reference materials. The library is part of PRIMO/ALMA, (formerly ALEPH), the Israeli academic library computer system, which provides access to all academic catalogs and databases in Israel as well as to many academic libraries in the world.

Every two months, the MDC Library releases a bulletin entitled Current Contents of Periodicals on the Middle East, which keeps readers up-to-date on the latest scholarly developments. The library also publishes regular updates which are essentially links to the full-text of reports, policy papers and briefings published by think tanks, institutes, and research centers the world over, on subjects related to the modern Middle East, North Africa and Islam. They constitute an important element for students and researchers alike to keep posted on new publications in this dynamic field of research. To subscribe, please e-mail us at dayanlib@tauex.tau.ac.il.

Readers from Israel and abroad are welcome at the library; our collection is geared towards both the local and international student or researcher of the Middle East. The staff is professional and friendly and highly trained to assist in locating materials.
