Copac now contains the full catalogue for the University of Exeter, excluding joint print holdings at its shared Tremough Campus in Cornwall. Particular strengths include Middle East Collections, the Arab World Documentation Unit (AWDU) and Special Collections.
The Middle East Collection is strong in most areas of Islamic studies, especially religion, philosophy, history, Arabic literature and all the social sciences. The AWDU covers all aspects of life (except literature and religion) in the Arabian countries plus Iran. The major strengths of the Special Collections include mediaeval and early modern history, nineteenth century studies and history of popular culture, and twentieth century literary and historical studies.
The Special Collections and the Arabic World Documentation Unit are housed in the Research Commons, Old Library Building. The Arabic literature collection is housed in the Forum Library at the centre of campus.
