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:

  • Malek Museum and Library Catalogue is a searchable catalogue of 17312 manuscripts and books in the Malek National Museum in Tehran. This site is searchable in Farsi and is categorized by time period, type, collection, and calligraphic style.
  • The Muftiships Web Archive, led by the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation, is a searchable database of Muftis and leading jurists from the Islamic world. Its 92 collections are categorized by subject, creator, language, and coverage, spanning both historical and contemporary periods. The videos, images, and PDF content can be accessed in a number of languages such as Arabic, Urdu, English, Indonesian, Farsi, French, Hindi, Azeri, Persian, and Turkish.
