HEB is available to entire campus communities. Using any web browser, faculty, students, staff and library patrons of subscribing institutions can view and search the HEB collection from campus offices, libraries, dorms and remotely when off-campus. An institutional subscription to HEB includes unlimited, simultaneous multi-user access from any Internet-connected location. In addition to unlimited multi-user access, libraries have access to free, downloadable MARC records.

Individual subscriptions are an attractive option for those whose institutions don't already have a subscription to HEB or for Middle East Studies Association members who might not be affiliated with a subscribing institution. Individual annual subscriptions are $40.00. Please visit to see if your institution subscribes.
