A Starting Point for Research on Israel and Palestine

To help students, scholars and community members understand the origins of the ongoing conflict in Israel and Palestine, Library employees have developed a LibGuide to serve as a starting point for research related to the region. This curated resource provides historical background information in order to set the stage for further studies of specific aspects of the conflict. It also offers a closer look at the experience of daily life in peace and war through first-person narratives, fiction, and film. Links to books, websites, databases, and journals provide interested parties with access to extensive essential resources.

For further research assistance or help with this LibGuide, please contact Susanne Hillman (shillman@ucsd.edu).
