Field Guide to Digital Islamic Law Resources Roundup

The Field Guide to Digital Islamic Law, in the form of a Google document, is a collection of resource links and annotations to SHARIAsource and other Harvard resources, global online digital resources, and a robust “Digital Islamic Law Collection.” This week we added two exciting resources to this list:

  • Al-Furqan’s Digital Library is a searchable catalogue of printed materials and manuscripts related to the Islamic world. The World Collections area of the Digital Library Portal presents the libraries of the World Survey in geographical context for the user to browse and explore interactively.
  • Persian Digital Library, an initiative by the University of Maryland’s Roshan Institute for Persian Studies, offers the first machine-actionable premodern Persian corpus. All texts, programs, and technology developed during this project will be open access/open source and will be made publicly available for everyone in the world to download, use, reuse, and adapt.
  • Osmanlica Turkce is an Ottoman Turkish dictionary that works by entering the word in Latin letters, giving the definition in Turkish.
