The Middle East Materials Project (MEMP) has microfilmed issues from 2010-2015 of the Syrian publication Ḍifāf. This cultural and political journal was published by the Syrian Ba'ath Party. As an official publication of the Syrian regime, it will be of interest to those studying Syrian intellectual life, as well as the Syrian civil war. Articles are chiefly in Arabic, although some content is in English or French.
Guy Burak, Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies Librarian at New York University, proposed this project and provided the holdings from the collection of NYU. By preserving this material through MEMP, it is now readily available to all CRL and MEMP members for borrowing.
