The Middle East Water Collection: This extremely well-researched website offers a unique perspective on the Middle East, by presenting multi- and interdisciplinary documents, books, data, journal and newspaper articles that are devoted solely to water. The Middle East Water Collection website, presented by the Oregon State University libraries, examines the very complex issues that water presents, "to provide a greater understanding of the multi-disciplinary nature of water and its interactions with politics, development, social issues, culture and religion." Additionally, the online collection is just a part of the complete 9000 item collection available at Oregon State University. Visitors can search via "Region/Country", "Basins", "Subjects", or "Full Text" by using the drop down boxes on the left hand side of the homepage. The "My Favorites" tab near the top of the page allows visitors to save any of the items to their own favorites page, simply by clicking "Add to Favorites" at the bottom of the entry they want to save. A pop-up window will display indicating the item has been saved to the visitors' page. [KMG]
