On the internet large quantities of information on the Middle East and the Islamic World are available. Apart from paid sources important free sources are also included in the Catalogue Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies in order to provide a starting point for research. On the weblog Midden Oosten en Islam collecties you can also find information on intersting websites, but this weblog is mostly in Dutch.
Another option is to use the selections made by other university libraries. Some important examples, but by no means the only examples, are:
- Etana (Electronic Tools and Ancient Near Eastern Archives)
- Egyptology resources
- Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative
- Menalib Middle Eastern Links
