The Middle East Materials Project (MEMP) will meet Wednesday, November 3 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

The Middle East Materials Project (MEMP) preserves collections in digital and microform format of unique, rare, hard to obtain, and often expensive research material for Middle East studies. It also preserves deteriorating printed and manuscript scholarly materials. The geographic scope of MEMP coverage includes Arab countries, Israel, Turkey, Iran, and related areas not covered by other cooperative materials projects.
