Oxford Islamic Studies Online

As a recipient of the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf award, the Gardner-Harvey Library has a subscription to Oxford Islamic Studies Online through February of 2014. We'll be sharing more about the other resources that we gained through the award, but we wanted to make sure that the word on the database went out immediately.

Oxford Islamic Studies Online features reference content and commentary by renowned scholars in areas such as global Islamic history, concepts, people, practices, politics, and culture, and is regularly updated as new content is commissioned and approved under the guidance of the Editor in Chief, John L. Esposito. Encompassing over 5,000 A–Z reference entries, chapters from scholarly and introductory works, Qur'anic materials, primary sources, images, maps, and timelines, Oxford Islamic Studies Online offers a multi-layered reference experience designed to provide a first stop for anyone needing information and context on Islam.

Access to the database is available both on- and off-campus using the link below:
