Oxford Islamic Studies Online

If you follow our blog, you may remember Kimbel Library was one of 843 libraries recently awarded with the Muslim Journey's grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.

Included with this grant is a one year subscription to Oxford Islamic Studies Online. This database features biographies, book chapters, primary sources, images, maps, and other content related to the field of Islamic Studies.

If you are interested in the Koran, you may enjoy viewing the side-by-side English translations available in this resource. 

In addition to Oxford Islamic Studies Online, Kimbel Library was awarded 25 books and 3 videos about Islamic history, society, and culture.

Watch for programming announcements in the year ahead that will feature these books and films!
