Middle East Sound Recordings

There is no list of Middle East sound recordings held in the Penn libraries, nor is there a search that will capture all sound recordings that relate to the Middle East. Nonetheless, one can compile a useful list with a number of different search strategies.
One option is to do a keyword search in Franklin
Use the term "sound recording" and combine it with the name of a country of region. Alternatively, use the word music with a place name (e.g., music AND Turkey).
Here are some examples of keyword searches:
"skey" limits the keyword search to the subject field.
"?" truncates the search word.

  • click the "All Search Limits" button.
  • On the limits page, choose a language, e.g., Arabic.
  • Click the "Set Limits" button. You will be returned to the main search page.
  • Perform a Keyword search for "sound recording." (To learn more about keyword searching
