Resources for students studying Persian with the School of Modern Languages

Finding Articles

Journal articles can be found by searching electronic databases, There are both general databases, like Library search as well as more specific subject based such as MLA - Modern Language Association or CIAO, Columbia International Affairs Online. Please bear in mind that most databases will index both journals that the Library subscribes to and those that it doesn't. See Need something we don't have for more information about accessing the latter. 

The A-Z is a complete list of all the Library's subscription databases.
